I am a Computer Science Sophomore and am really interested in the theory of programming languages .
Having recently finished a basic course on Compilers and Theory Of Computation – I am really itching to get my hands dirty on a real world project , and CodeCombat seemed to be an excellent place to contribute .
I have few questions before I start to work on the compiler
Which language should I write the parser for ? A language which ideally takes 2-3 days of intense coding and is pretty easy yet useful is preferred .
It would be great if you can answer these questions so that I can start working on the parser ASAP.
