I still don't understand the effect devRant has had on me...

When I first joined I was quite happy just being my old 2D game developer self but now all I want to do is build CLI tools, interpreters, root through source code I don't understand and not shut up about arch... Not sure of I'm down the right track or not now

    Why you no like compilers :(

    @RememberMe oh trust me I want to build a compiler buy don't fully understand interpreters yet... Baby steps young one

    This is fine, you've gathered knowledge, interests and new hobbies. But, please, do not brag with arch, it is just a Linux distro. An interesting distribution but still only one of many distros.

    @nnee I don't actually brag about using arch, it's more of a default goto meme whenever anyone says anything related to Linux ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Literally the same applies to me. I used to do a lot 2D games stuff and now I love CLI, Compilers and Arch. But I think I surpassed the Arch stage and go more into BSD. Also I actually start to focus on compilers for my masters degree.

    @host127001 that's awesome!

    I would love to learn about compilers but still can't grasp a simple interpreter :-(

    @lxmcf what do you struggle with? I mean after lexing and parsing, once you have the AST, naive evaluation is rather simple. I remember reading 'how to build your own scheme' or something like that. I think that's a great article to read in order to learn about interpreters

    @lxmcf also, if you already annoy the people around you with Arch, learn some functional programming and don't shut up about that either.

    @host127001 I struggle with most of it honestly, especially on how too actually structure tokens and have no clue how to evaluate expressions...

    And oh I like the sound of that, we do need another annoying meme for a change

    @host127001 lol! If you get me started on Haskell/OCaml I don't shut up at all, I totally know what you mean xD
