nyu is a combination of modern academic approaches to parsing formal grammars from PEGs and expression grammars that represents the new state of the art in parser generators. nyu grammars are written in a powerful language based on PEGs (parsing expression grammars) but with modifications to allow both the AST and the parser to be specified intuitively in a single grammar. nyu outputs parsers that take advantage of the chilon::parser meta-programming library for C++. The generated parsers are almost as concise and readable as the input grammars, yet perform as well as hand-written C code. nyu ASTs are built using tuples, variant types, and lists, and allow self referential parsers and AST nodes to be manipulated. Advanced features such as hashed containers and grammar inheritance are also possible and well tested. nyu is currently powerful enough to deal with complex grammars and bootstraps its own parser.
The Supernova programming language is a modern scripting language and the first one that presents the concept of programming with direct fiction description using a clear subset of pure human language. It is easy for users with no programming experience. It is not sensitive to case, spaces, tabs, or line breaks. It support GUI programming. The source code can be written in a mixture of Arabic and English. It lets you distribute directly executable application files. It lets you use the Windows API and call DLL functions. It includes libraries for sound playing, sound recording, and movie playing. It includes commands for text processing, date and time processing, multi-dimension arrays, and file I/O. Its documentation includes many samples and tests.
autober is a language for generating BER decoders. It's different from an ASN.1 compiler in that it's much simpler and it only deals with BER-encoded messages. It is intended for smart card and RFID applications where much of the data stored on these devices is, in-fact, BER-encoded TLV data. The language is designed to be very similar to the template definitions found in the specifications for smart card and RFID applications.
MBase is a .NET-oriented meta-programming framework. It is designed for rapid development and high quality implementation of custom programming language compilers, but can also serve as a robust and flexible embeddable scripting engine. Applications are not limited to .NET platform, since MBase can be used to implement compilers targeting other platforms - JVM, native assembly, C, etc.
Brace is a dialect of C that looks like Python. It has coroutines, hygenic macros, header generation, and libraries with graphics and sound. It is meant to be good for beginners, kids, and experts. Brace is translated to C, then compiled, with #! support and cached executables. It is fairly portable, and runs on GNU/Linux, Unix, and Windows with MinGW. It should also run on Mac OS X. It comes with a lot of demo programs, many with animated graphics.
FreeForth is a small and fast interactive compiler composed of an extensible set of macros generating inline compact i386 native code, including floating-point instructions, and an easy interface to Linux and Windows dynamic libraries. It uses two stacks to pass subroutines arguments and results separately from return addresses, like other Forth dialects, but unlike them, it is a simpler pure compiler (without an interpreter) offering interactivity through "anonymous" subroutines which are executed by their closing ";" macro. FreeForth is fully documented by 100K of interactive online help. Since its first release in 2006, it has been used every day for cross-development of realtime industrial applications embedded in microcontrollers, and for PC-controlled manufacturing test benches. The FreeForth distribution includes an interactive incremental assembler for the MSP430 microcontroller family.
LayerD is an effort to develop an extensible framework for programming languages. It features unlimited compile time programmability, modular design, pluggable code generation, unified high level semantics, multiple source languages, integration of RAD tools with compilers and languages, development of domain specific languages, development of abstract software, extensive features for code generation and meta-programming. Its implementation is able to implement software for .NET and Java bytecode using one high level language that is extensible by programming compile time functionality. There is a Java front-end that allows programming for this new framework using a well known language.
X# (pronounced X-sharp) is an XML-oriented programming language designed to quickly create Web applications and services. Everything is represented as an XML tree, and instead of using functions to manipulate information or perform actions, all possible operations are done by adding, removing, or changing nodes from this tree. Since there are no functions to learn and everything is done intuitively, even inexperienced developers can create complex Web applications and services quickly.
KBasic is a programming language related to VB.NET, Visual Basic, Visual Basic for Applications, and Java. It combines the best features of those tools and comes with built-in backward-compatibility support for VB, VBA, and QBasic. It also comes with support for VB.NET syntax, functions, and similar objects and classes. It allows developers with an installed base of VB applications to start developing for a mixed-platform environment. KBasic comprises a compiler, an interpreter, and an integrated development environment.
