Can we make a new Programming Language
[deleted]

Hello friends, I know this is weird but Let me just Say it.
Is it actually possible to create a new programming Language like C++ and other. I saw Go( A language made by Google). So is it actually possible, I know it is not within my reach but if the whole team of Repl.it comes together,it is possible. Just a suggestion to start a new project. I found a few videos on YouTube and got inspired though nothing went in my head 😩

NOTE

I have no idea about it just an inspiration.😃

It is very possible, as we wouldn't have anything but binary right now. I'm pretty sure this message was sent using JavaScript, and it was made by someone (or more, most likely), wasn't it? Of course, it was! But the real question is "WHY"? Why should we make a whole new language when there are thousands? Why is yours better than what's available? Are you trying to make a better version of C++? It's still being updated, and there's D anyway. Are you trying to make a stricter version of JavaScript? There's TypeScript already. Are you trying to make a language specifically for graphing? Too late, already done, I think that'd be R. What's it run context? Will it be executed in a browser, on a computer? Is it fast, optimized, efficient? Will it work on a Mac, Linux, or a Windows system... or all of them?

Lastly, and most importantly... making a new language is EXTREMELY hard, okay that's not necessarily true, but making a good + useful language is anything but easy.

@StudentFires Every Language has its pros and cons. Every thing has its own advantages and disadvantages,that may or may not be parallel or we can say appropriate to our needs. Hence it is better to create something that fits our needs. According to your views no new language like C++, Java and others won't be discovered. We would have sticked to FORTRAN.

@StudentFires Fortran was the first programming language.

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman Fortran is an awesome programming language.

@CaptainAnon

Did not try SO IDK

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon IDK= I don't Know

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman I was wondering what 'SO' meant.

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon So in English sorry for the Caps

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman Oh, no worries. I was just momentarily confused :).
Fortran is really good for numerical computing.

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon Seriously, I have no Idea about it.

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon

It seems really good.

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman It's got great concurrency and works really well for anything linear algebra. Not so good for anything else.

[deleted]

@CaptainAnon Once it was the best perhaps

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman It's still the best in its field, but designed for specific applications only within the domain of HPC (high-performance computing).

@CaptainAnon Anyway this is going out of the topic.

Excuse me, but could I join? I didn't see this post until now! @MrHackman

[deleted]

@Viper2211 Actually this was an idea to unite the full repl.it team to work under a single project but till now no initiative is taken to start . So you are not late.☺️

Stay focussed on this thread until something is done and an initiative is made.

@MrHackman I didn't give my views, did I? I just questioned why. We would still be using binary or assembly today, as no languages would've been developed, but they improved upon the current options and filled a niche, so we have them.

@StudentFires Making a language is good practice. But you're right on that, I've never made one since it's extremely hard to do so

[deleted]

@JadenGarcia It is too old bro.

[deleted]

@StudentFires When you ask why,you question the proposal. Anyway you are interested now. I guess.

[deleted]

@DynamicSquid Yes. A new Language is second hardest project in the world of programming. Hardest project is making an OS. But we don't need to work on it.

CaptainAnon (116)

@MrHackman I'd dispute that. I think there are much more tricky things; numerical computing (I'm including machine learning in this as well as the classic algorithms), networking and databases are pretty hard.

CaptainAnon (116)

@JadenGarcia FORTRAN was the world's first high level programming language. Assembly was the world's first set of abbreviations for programming with.

@CaptainAnon 🤷 Did not try

I am more of intrestented on the unity of repolers
Why not make repl.it more into an active place like a game
levels and leguse depending in your programing knolwedge and making every legue with the same group and chat with some sort of missions so to level up and the final two missions is to make a lungusge then a n os
if you want to unite all repolers into one project you should give them the platform (an imaginery one) to grow @MrHackman
