Write your own scripting language

February 26, 2016

Writing your own scripting language is a fun challenge and a good exercise. If you ever wanted to write your own “perfect” language, now’s your chance!

Examples of some scripting languages:

  • Bash
  • Python
  • Javascript
  • Lua
  • Perl
  • PHP

Examples of some less useful and smaller languages:

Here’s this week’s challenge. Write a language!

  • Give it a name
  • Give it an extension (.txt, .py, .s)

Your scripting language should be able to do the following:

  • Displays “Hello, World” (STDIO, Pop-ups, anyway you want!)
  • Display a green rectangle (anyway you can)
  • Compute FizzBuzz

You may do this any way you wish. The more creative the better!
