Quick Forth Question

Dudez & Dudettez:
I'm trying to get some SnapForth ROMs running for the Panasonic HHC 'puter
- and I'm having a bit'o'difficulty, mainly as I know... ummm... "squat"
about Forth. ;^>
I've gotten the ROMs to be able to start SnapForth, ask for a filename,
create the filename & filespace (about 1K of RAM goes "buh-bye" for every
filename I make... ;-) but no matter what I type, all I get is "Can't Find
xxxxx" where xxxxx seems to be any durned thing I type.
It can't seem to make new words, and every simple "Hello World" type
proggie I've found on the net makes *no* sense to the 'puter.
It looks like it has a max. of 4-character words... duh, waitaminit...
lemme check the ROMs again... *maybe* 5-character words, as it looks like
the last character of the word is OR'ed with $80... It looks like it's got
quite a few words, looking at the ROMs in ASCII - I found VARIA, CONST,
STRIN, CVECT, JUMP....
I could provide a clip of the ROM word table if it would help...
100 LLL !
[[ To try to store the variable 100 in LLL ]]
100 VAR DORK
100 VARI DORK
100 VARIA DORK
100 VARIABLE DORK
[[ To try to store the variable 100 in DORK ]]
100 CONS BURP
100 CONST BURP
[[ To try to make BURP a constant of 100 ]]
I've also tried:
." Hello World"
and other things I'd seen in various webpages thanks to Google.
Anyone got any other idears for me?
