It’s been a hobby of mine for that last few years to try to create my own programming language. Don’t ask why, I just want to. Over the years I have tried and failed multiple times. This is mainly due to the fact that I am a self taught programmer with no CS background, or Math background, or any real education.
When you set out to learn how one makes a programming language you will receive a series of answers similar to this:
- Use flex to generate a lexical analyzer.
- Use Bison to generate a Parser
- Forget both of those and use ANTLR
