A Lisp interpreter in C++.
lispp is a small Lisp interpreter in C++.
A quick intro to the language:
; a comment ; a number 2 -8 4.0 3/4 ; a string "octobanana" ; a symbol * map nyble ; a list '(1 2 3 4) '(1 "hello" 2 "world") '(* 2 4) ; a function (* 2 2) (- 8 4) ; create a mutable binding (var x 4) (var x 8) ; create an immutable binding (let name "octobanana") (let name 8) ; error constant binding ; create a function (fn [x] (* 2 x)) ; create, bind, and call a function (let double (fn [x] (* 2 x))) (double 4) ; 8 ; create and call an anonymous function ((fn [x] (* 2 x)) 4) ; 8 ; prevent evaluation of expression (quote (1 2 3)) ; (1 2 3) '(1 2 3) ; (1 2 3) ; index into list or string (1 "octobanana") ; "c" (2 '(1 2 3)) ; 3 ; get all but the first element in list or string (@ "octobanana") ; "ctobanana" (@ '(1 2 3)) ; (2 3)
This section describes what environments this program may run on, any prior requirements or dependencies needed, and any third party libraries used.
Any shell commands using relative paths are expected to be executed in the root directory of this repository.
Using a new version of GCC or Clang is required, as the default
Apple Clang compiler does not support C++17 Standard Library features such as
A new compiler can be installed through a third-party package manager such as Brew. Assuming you have Brew already installed, the following commands should install the latest GCC.
brew install gcc brew link gcc
The following CMake argument will then need to be appended to the end of the line when running the shell script.
Remember to replace the placeholder
<path-to-g++> with the canonical path to the new g++ compiler binary.
./RUNME.sh build -- -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER='<path-to-g++>'
