Designing a programming language is a gruesome task to do. Even if designing an interpreter. I'm quite surprised to see some folks talking about it as if it is just a syntax.

@PawelK Not exactly to be honest. Syntax is just a way to annotate what your compiler or interpreter provides. If you start with the syntax then IMHO you're can easily get distracted by it. I'd like to think that you need to provide a nice syntax for your compiler's features rather than providing features for your syntax.


Thats why I said roughly. Yes requirements define features define syntax more or less imho.
