A Canadian firm released a commercial version of FIG Forth called Wycove Forth.

There were enough differences between the two versions that not all code was portable.

These were minor differences and dedicated Forth programmers were able to overcome this problem.

Wycove used a different editor than TI-Forth and the Forth Screens were laid out a little differently.

They both accessed a diskette differently also.

Wycove's main claim to fame was that for the first couple of releases of the compiler they had a version on cassette for users that didn't have a PEB.

1987-Wycove Forth v3.0 is released by Tim MacEachern, but with no documentation.
