Getting started in language design  reading material?I have a bunch of ideas for my own programming language (like every other CS undergraduate with an appropriate degree of hubris) and I'm starting to fiddle with writing my own compiler for it, but I'm having trouble understanding a lot of technical material out there. Most of the programming language papers and tutorials I'm finding on the net assume that I already know lambda calculus and other advanced mathematics. What's some good easy to understand stuff I can read to get the mathematical basis I need to understand all the jargon, or understand some if it without the math? (i.e. I'd like to understand dependent typing, but the papers I've found turn my brain into knots) By dataangel at 20051126 23:37  LtU Forum  previous forum topic  next forum topic  other blogs  5606 reads
