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.😃

this question has already been answered by a lot of people but I'll just restate what I consider the important points:

  • Yes, it's possible to make a programming language
  • There's not really a point to make a useful language since lots of already been made
  • Making a programming language is EXTREMELY difficult. In fact, it's one of the most difficult things to do if you are making it properly with an interpreter, lexer, parser, compiler, etc. I would rank it only a bit less difficult than making an operating system itself (if you are actually making the entire compiler)
  • Most "programming languages" you see on repl.it are fake and not really programming languages they just use lots of text replacement and regex

@MrEconomical VERY TRUE actually very few know it and they claim to make their own. They don't know that a full well established Company(GOOGLE) sat down at one place to develop a language GO. hence I asked the full Repl.it also to do the same

BUT>>

😩

all are scattered to their own.

@MrEconomical

lots of text replacement and regex

I’m trying to make one with someone, but that’s what they are trying to do, and I don’t know how to break it to them that that’s bad and now I’m sad :(

You can ignore this post if you want thanks for listening or not either way thx.
