Hello, I am designing a programming language that will run natively.
That is to say, it will run like C, without a need of an interpreter
nor a standard library (well, there will be, but I want to be able to
write an operating system, too.)
The language parsing (converting a=b into <assignment><variable
name="a"/><variable name="b"/></assignment>---which is not necessarily
correct, anyways) I will skip for now; I will write directly in XML
and use a XML parser to get a tree of my program.
* I need help in finding an appropiate way of structuring my XML. Any
The next part is where I need more help in: how to convert this tree
into assembly language.
* Is there any documentation on this part of writing a compiler?
This compiler will not need to be fast (might be written in Python or
Ruby or Java---although I don't like Java that much---, instead of C
or C++, which is counterintuitive for me); I will write a new compiler
in the language I am creating (kind of what was done for C.)
Thanks for your help. :)
* Any other articles/ideas on writing compilers or designing
programming languages are welcome. :)
