I've installed Gforth for Android 0.7.9_20211223 on my phone and have an external SD card, but the source code and examples are unpacked on the internal flash memory where I have little space even though it says on https://wiki.forth-ev.de/doku.php/en:projects:gforth-android:start that it should be unpacked on sdcard. If I move the gforth folder to the external SD card it is still unpacked again on the internal memory.
Internal flash: /storage/emulated/0/gforth/
External SD card: /storage/8009-18E6/gforth/

Is it possible to use only the external SD card and not the internal flash with Gforth?

If not: Is there some other way to store as little as possible on the internal flash and store the rest on the external SD card?

It might be possible to get to know the external SD card directory using some Android function, or you could make it user configurable. Alternatively, you could document how to store most on external SD card.

I would also like gfortherr.log and gforthout.log to be stored on the external SD card, and not on the root of the internal flash /storage/emulated/0/, as they are now.

My Android phone: Alcatel 1C 2019 TCL 5003D_EEA - SDK: 27 ABI: armeabi-v7a
with Android 8.1.0.
I installed Gforth from Google Play.
