If you are creating a 'new' language you should look hard at the goals
you are trying to achieve. If it is to just learn about the process,
then please have a look at 'little smalltalk' by Timothy Bud. It is a
*small* implementation of smalltalk, a pure OO language.
If you want to see how to turn C into an OO language (but not C++) you
may want to look at Brad Cox's book:
Object-oriented programming: An evolutionary approach by Brad J Cox
Although an older book, it is an excellent introduction because it
doesn't assume the reader has OO experience. It tells you about ISA
and KINDOF and SUBCLASS/SUPERCLASS; all good stuff.
And finally, if you are trying to contribute to the state of the art,
by creating a new language to solve interesting problems, you should
read all that you can. Smalltalk the language and implementation.
The C++ book by Stroustrup, the JAVA whitepapers. RUBY. Python. Try
programming in the languages.
[It describes Objective C, originally written as a preprocessor that
compiled into plain C, now available as part of the GCC suite. It's
a nice language, less ambitions than C++ and without C++'s barocities.
