Mitchell Preview 1 released

Posted on October 21, 2004 by Chris Lumens in , .

While everyone wasn’t looking, I started working on my own programming language and a compiler for that language. It’s sort of a design as you go project - currently I’ve written up a grammar, so all the compiler can do is check the syntax. The entire purpose of this language is that I have an interest in bootstrapping compilers, and there’s no better way to learn about something than by doing it. If this language is useful to anyone else, that’s completely a side-effect.

The mitchell language and compiler home page has more information and documentation.
