DeltaForth File Builder is an open-source project, which comes with full source code. It makes use of the ICSharpCode.TextEditor control by the ICSharpCode team. This control is released under the Gnu LGPL license, therefore DeltaForth File Builder is released under the Gnu GPL license (which is LGPL-compliant). Full source code for ICSharpCode.TextEditor is provided with the Builder.
DeltaForth File Builder’s source code implements a particular class library called DeltaForthFileBuilder.CompilerServices which provides managed access to the DeltaForth compiler. This class library is accompanied by a compiled help file which lets you learn how to use it in your own applications. This help file has been create with the SandCastle HelpFile Builder by Eric Woodruff.

The installer for this project features the CyberInstaller Suite by our Sergio Pappalardo.
