    Last month I worked on the language ABI (Application Binary Interface). This is where I have made an effort to make modules buildable and exportable (into dynamic shared libraries) to the language interpreter. I call the build environment for these modules the SDK (software development kit). It is a Meson project that supports not just Unix based platforms but also Windows. Before this month, one could only export functions in modules, but now one can include classes also. For me this felt very good, as I would expect of a language to support as much in the SDK as possible of the original script-language data types. Here is a link to an example module library written in C that can be compiled for export into the language interpreter: https://github.com/Ricardicus/ric-script/blob/master/src/sdk_lib/ext_lib.c

    Continued work on my interpreter for [ric-script](https://github.com/Ricardicus/ric-script) which is an interpreted dynamically typed and lazy evaluated language. Imagine Javascript without semicolon and Python without the indentation thing. I build the syntax tree using yacc. Here is a [code sample](https://ric-script-u5ep8.ondigitalocean.app/doc/syntaxwalkthrough.html#class-declarations) where I build an RPN calculator in it. I’d appreciate the dopamine kick of a star if you find the project interesting.
  • How can I support very big integers?

    I am developing an interpreter for a language which currently use signed 32-bit values for integers. I was thinking about supporting big numbers, like 1024 bit values. I have implemented everything I C. Does anyone know of any good libraries in C I could use for this? Preferably I search for smaller projects I can build from source to incorporate in the interpreter. I have googled gmp but it’s source is 19 MB and supports FFT and stuff. I would like something that just supports basic arithmetic; multiplication, addition etc.

    Thanks again for this tip! I have now implemented it in my project . Here is a sample. I can print ridiculous calculation such as 81^1000 now :)

    Thank you all! I have made it work now in my project . A sample script can be found here .

    I continuing with building my first programming language. It is an interpreted dynamically typed and lazy evaluated language. It is like a merge of python and javascript, imagine Python except the focus on indentation. I build the syntax tree using yacc. Here is a code sample where I build an RPN calculator in it. The source repository is here, I’d appreciate the dopamine kick of a star if you like it.
