About the THAIL project

Imma ask the people who I know are involved:
@coder100 , @LizFoster , @LiamDonoHue , and @AdriaDonohue

here's a link to their development:

Why are you making this? I know that its a cool exercise and project to do but if you seriously want to make a new language then why? what advantages does it have over others,

That's how I think all the current popular languages have survived, their use and popularity and efficiency people didn't need a whole new language especially if the differences were tiny between them as well as that it's especially risky dedicating yourself to a language no one else knows, so your language must be pretty good at something - to be at least used.

(and also explain this please: `printline = "hello".)

I dunno what that rant was but I think you get my point...here as some examples of modern languages and why they popular

Python: very easy to use and learn .Used for AI and data analysis
Java: I dunno why it is popular but it's pretty good for making games
and apps
HTML : basically e language the web is made up of, quite easy to
learn - not this is a front end language so it doesn't really
JS: goes pretty well with HTML and allows for interactivity on
websites and now games
c++: very popular among game developers and some app makers as it is
a very powerful league and allows for procedural stuff and other
(don't know that much)

Yeah obviously these languages could do anything but this is what they are best at...

Well this language is built for math. The team has been working on tons of math functions

xolyon (343)

@LiamDonohue Oh, nice like the generic maths every language has or some high-level algebra stuff?

Even still what are the uses its god if it has maths as long as you can use that maths for something (for example python is usually a backend thing for a lot of websites)

xolyon (343)

@LiamDonohue and why do you have printline = "hello"

LiamDonohue (291)

High level math stuff like calc @xolyon

LiamDonohue (291)

Idk i just wanted to do something different @xolyon

xolyon (343)

@LiamDonohue lol ok, if it weren't for the [type of data] [variable name] = [data] it would've been really confusing but still quite interesting, hope it works out

@LiamDonohue Umm... you ought to look at Wolfram Language. Your already outmatched. Do you happen to be a mathematical genius? Do you have an AI helping you code and find answers? Do you have a cloud server to help too? A massive community? A super easy language to learn? Ehh, you have some competition.

@StudentFires I think they doing it for fun really

@LiamDonohue I have a few questions, If you wouldn't mind obliging me in answering them I'd be grateful.
1. Do you have a Github repository?
2. Are the mathematics functions written in THAIL or some other language?
3. Can I join?
4. What is the first version of the translator being written in?

@LiamDonohue People have been making math orientated languages since forever, you used to have things like R and Fortran, now we have a bunch of modern ones that took their place

CSharpIsGud (931)

@LiamDonohue A language that is built for math should be made in something like C or C++, especially if it is interpreted

LiamDonohue (291)
  1. Yes
    2 & 4. we will probably be writing it all in js for now, we are using ace
  2. absolutely
LiamDonohue (291)

@lizfoster is the math genius lol, also currently its for math but i want it to be a powerful allpurpose language @StudentFires

LizFoster (648)

@LiamDonohue Awww, no, I'm no genius. You speak too highly of me!wwwwwww

Thank you, though ^ ^*

xxpertHacker (865)

@LiamDonohue Umm, pretty sure she doesn't come close to Stephen Wolfram. Also, I'm a math genius too, me and Liz would work well together! You ought to invite me to work on the language. I know a ton of random coding and computer science stuff that might come in handy.
