Haystack: Statically typed, compiled, stack language
2 projects | /r/concatenative | 4 Apr 2023
The syntax is too verbose. A concatenative language should make factoring into small definitions easy, so the overhead should be minimized. Haystack has potential for being more lightweight. For reference, here's a braindump of Wok syntax.
What are some alternatives?
mlatu - A declarative concatenative programming language
edina - Edina - A simple stack-oriented compiled programming language.
haystack - Haystack is a compiled, statically typed, stack-based language with opt-in variable assignment.
rail - Rail programming language
lbForth - Self-hosting metacompiled Forth, bootstrapping from a few lines of C; targets Linux, Windows, ARM, RISC-V, 68000, PDP-11, asm.js.
