Hello. This is my first post, so please forgive me for any mistakes I make.
I have been programming for about 16 years now and Perl has always been one of my absolute favorite languages. I have been wondering how I can make a Programming language using Perl, only Perl and nothing but Perl. How would I go about doing this?
I have never created a language before. I know the basics of what a compiler is and how it works. But I don't know how to make one. After I make the language (which I don't know how to do) how do I make the language work with the compiler?
I truly do not want to read another book, as these can be extremely unhelpful. There really aren't any good tutorials that I can find. Can anyone give me some kind of tutorial or a point in the right direction? Thanks
P.S.- No mistakes that I can find! I'm good at this :-)
