I see a lot of you like to make programming languages.
Most do it ins python, some in C. Let me tell you something …
Learn LISP. It is the best for this type of work. There is a saying that every language converge to LISP eventually, because this is what LISP excel at.
Look at silly example:
;; Define a few commands (defun print-command () (print "Hello World")) (defun add-command (a b) (+ a b)) (defun repeat-command (n f) (dotimes (i n) (funcall f))) ;; Define a function to execute commands (defun execute-command (cmd &rest args) (cond ((eq cmd 'print) (apply #'print-command args)) ((eq cmd 'add) (apply #'add-command args)) ((eq cmd 'repeat) (apply #'repeat-command args)) (t (error "Unknown command: ~S" cmd)))) ;; Example usage (execute-command 'print) (execute-command 'add 1 2) (execute-command 'repeat 3 #'(lambda () (execute-command 'print)))
It is easy to define commands and even execution behaviour. It is probably not as readable as python, but it makes it easier and it is compiled.
I have not used LISP since my UNI days, and people here doing languages are inspiring me to look at it again without the hate if aunt student forced to learn it
