New programing language

Post by Tom K! »

I've found a new programing language and i think it could be very usefull for this project. It's free software and the sourcecode is also available for free. You can download it from the following site: http://kidev.com/devres/?page=linley

ReactOs is written in Asm, C and C++ no other langues will be accpect in the svn. For it it easy to compile for diffent CPU like PowerPC, intel and so on

So if i modify the code of this language to put out asm-code, it would be possible to write progs for ROS?

If you can use that language to write programs for Windows, you can also use it to write programs for ReactOS. However, we won't accept such programs into the SVN repository, so they won't be "official".

The answer is no

The asm are only being use as optimze code in most case. and it often optimze so hard no compiler can sques out more speed.
And all apps and dll must be writen in C then u can use asm to optimze some part.

Cloning means cloning :) don't forget to include FreeBASIC as clone of QB whis was distributed as part of windows (of course not default one) ;). This just stupid joke.

Hey, I'm all for it :)
(Just as soon as they port the FreeBASIC compiler to C)

You can make/test translations, tell about ReactOs to all your friends, and, of course, try ReactOS versions to help finding bugs (ReactOS tester :)).

Sorry for the late reply!
Making translations would interest me. But i think the german translation is finished.

What you can do is translating/improving the Wiki or you could just check already translated files in order to "debug" (Tippfehler, Diskontinuitäten, Vergessenes - manchmal aber nur manchmal kann man doch noch etwas finden) them.

Yes I've read that FreeBASIC creator is recoding it to support GCC as frontend. If i got it right, there is handfull of languages which use internaly some shared GCC compiler part to generate the code. This means where this internal generator is ported all the language work (more or less). Means this when FreeBASIC becomes fully GCC compliant, will it be supported? Are other GCC languages supported?

Depends on what you mean by "supported". If you mean that you should be able to run e.g. an Ada program on ReactOS, then that's definitely a goal. However, for programs included with ReactOS we only accept C and C++. The main reason for that is to keep the requirements to compile ReactOS to a minimum, some projects require a dozen or more tools before you can build it, we want to avoid that.

Thank you. So to sum it any language which work under windows will is by default supported on the system, but not to be inncluded into main code.
