Create your own programming language with Rust
This repository contains the codes and the contents for createlang.rs
Why am I writing this book?
The book arises from my frustration of not finding modern, clear and concise teaching materials that are readily accessible to beginners like me who wants to learn a bit on how to create their own programming language.
The following are my guidelines
"If you don't know how compilers work, then you don't know how computers work" 1
"If you can’t explain something in simple terms, you don’t understand it" 2
Make sure you have
- Rust installed
- Cloned this repository (follow the instructions in each chapter)
- LLVM v10.0 installed (Debina/Ubuntu or macOS) to run and test locally
cargo test --tests
