Concrete Basic

2017

Concrete Basic is a small dynamically typed procedural programming language I wrote during my time at Charles University. It’s implemented in C# and demonstrates the architecture of a basic interpreter using OO principles.

The language was designed to look reminiscent of old-school BASIC, by utilizing an entirely keyword-based syntax and case-insensitivity (which enables one to write control structure keywords and function names in ALL CAPS). Explicit line-numbering, GOTOs, and other more archaic BASIC-isms weren’t included in the design for the sake of implementation ease and my sanity (semantically the language is most similar to Lua).
