Nimrod is a statically typed, imperative programming language that tries to give the programmer ultimate power without compromising on runtime efficiency. This means it focuses on compile-time mechanisms in all their various forms. Beneath a nice infix/indentation based syntax with a powerful (AST based, hygienic) macro system lies a semantic model that supports a soft realtime GC on thread local heaps. Asynchronous message passing is used between threads, so no "stop the world" mechanism is necessary. An unsafe shared memory heap is also provided for the increased efficiency that results from that model.
gradle-sablecc-plugin is a gradle plugin which creates parsers using SableCC. SableCC supports automatic CST-to-AST transformation, emits all the visitor patterns and analysis helpers you will likely ever need, and is LR, not LL(k). Many example grammars are available for modern languages; the author of this plugin has written dozens.
Gcmc is a front-end language for generating G-code, SVG, and DXF for CNC mills, lathes, laser cutters, and other numerically controlled machines employing G-code, SVG, or DXF. The language is a context-free grammar created to overcome the archaic format of G-code programming, but can be used more generally for many targets. Gcmc aims to be more readable and understandable than G-code and enable programmatic designing. Gcmc makes extensive use of vector mathematics to support the 3D nature of CNC machining. It handles units as millimeters, mils (inch), degrees, and radians and performs automatic conversions where necessary.
Liberty Eiffel is a compiler for the Eiffel programming language. It continues the development of SmartEiffel, the GNU Eiffel Compiler. It is a complete, small, and fast Eiffel compiler, including an Eiffel to C compiler, documentation tools, a pretty printer, a debugger, and various other tools. It also includes a large library of classes distributed under the terms of the MIT/X Consortium License and a comprehensive set of wrappers/bindings for widespread free software libraries. Eiffel is an advanced object-oriented programming language that emphasizes the design and construction of high-quality and reusable software.
HGL is a compiler/interpreter suite for developing images. It features its own simple but powerful language, Lua integration, output in various formats as well as runtime input handled by plugins, and easy integration into various environments like Web servers or graphical applications. The input is taken from a source file, which has to be compiled for quick and frequent access by the interpreter. An interpreter then runs the compiled files, takes input from custom plugins (if neccessary), and outputs its result via custom plugins.
fpgasm creates bare-metal FPGA designs without Verilog or VHDL. Traditionally, FPGAs are built using proprietary Verilog or VHDL language implementations provided by the vendor. fpgasm is to Verilog and VHDL as assembly language is to C++. It takes you all the way to the netlist, and is not just a translator to Verilog. Because of that, the total "make" time to a working fpga is seconds, not minutes. With fewer than ten reserved words, fpgasm syntax can be mastered in a few minutes. With FPGA assembler, you can focus on understanding the FPGA substrate and how your design should map onto it (instead of figuring out large and complicated tools).
