Peregrine - A blazing fast language for the blazing fast world(WIP)

Overview


A Blazing-Fast Language for the Blazing-Fast world.




The Peregrine Programming Language

Peregrine is a Compiled, Systems Programming Language, currently under development.

Purpose and intent

Why am I creating this language?

I am creating it to have the simplicity of Python with the efficiency of C.

Goals

  • Ease of use
  • Fast
  • Highly modular
  • Occupies less memory
  • Compiled

How does it work?

You can consider it to be a dialect of python which compiles to clean C++. It will have no garbage collector because it is a system programming language.

Building/compiling Peregrine

Requirements to build from source

Compilation instructions

1)Clone the rewrite branch of https://github.com/peregrine-lang/Peregrine.git

git clone https://github.com/peregrine-lang/Peregrine.git

2)Cd into the directory

cd Peregrine

3)Build it

meson builddir
cd builddir
ninja

This will create the binary of the compiler named ./peregrine.elf in the builddir folder

C++ backend To compile it using the c++ backing just run ./peregrine.elf compile path_to_file.pe .It will create the executable named ./a.out. Run it to see the result. Check the can_comp.pe file in the root directory to know what you can do with the c++ backend at this point

JS Backend To use the javascript backend use the following command ./peregrine.elf compile path_to_file.js.pe -js. It will create the javascript file named index.js. Run the generated javascript using node index.js. Check the can_comp.js.pe file in the root directory to know what you can do with the js backend at this point

Progress

Currently we are working on the codegen and some Peregrine programs are working

Example

Here is a small example for you to understand:

def main():
    printf("Hello, World!")

The main function is the entry point for the program.

  • Refined argument parser

    Refined argument parser

    Any change needs to be discussed before proceeding. Failure to do so may result in the rejection of the pull request.

    Please provide enough information so that others can review your pull request: I made some changed to the argument parser. Now, it will be easy to expand the cli with more commands. But, I have changed how the arguments are parsed in the cli. An example 👇

    swallow compile <filename> --o=<output-file>
    

    Explain the details for making this change. What existing problem does the pull request solve? The pull request cleans up the mess in the main function and allows the cli to expand with more commands

    Code formatting The V code was formatted with v fmt. The C code was beautified with clang_format

  • Comparison docs

    Comparison docs

    Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe. A clear and concise description of what the problem is. Ex. I'm always frustrated when [...]

    No problems

    Describe the solution you'd like A clear and concise description of what you want to happen.

    I would like to work towards learning swallow as primary language and assist in writing docs and implementing self hosting of the language and stay a consistent contributor to this amazing project I did read contribution.md and didn't see anything about my question which is why I ask here

    Describe alternatives you've considered A clear and concise description of any alternative solutions or features you've considered.

    Whether I can or cannot help with the documentation maybe the documentation might have this but I'd be happy make a domain or go under a docs sub domain and write comparisons of swallow and python with examples and explanations

    Additional context Add any other context or screenshots about the feature request here.

    If I could work towards these goals I would love to become a consistent contributor for swallow as I had my own similar ideas but my experience programming is nowhere near capable and I can see this being what I was looking for and taking a lead in tech a few years from now

  • Lot's of questions (future, memory mgmt, metaprogramming, etc.)

    Lot's of questions (future, memory mgmt, metaprogramming, etc.)

    Please refer to https://github.com/aardappel/lobster/issues/136 , read the thread to understand why I'm asking these questions and please answer them here :wink:.

    Additionally I'd like to ask:

    a) Why don't you want to join Lobster or Cython or even RPython devs instead of starting from scratch? b) How do you want to support parallel computation on multiple CPU/GPU/FPGA cores? This is by far the most important point utterly needed as explained in https://github.com/vlang/v/discussions/11608 because it affects nearly all design decisions made when designing a language. This ranges from "each statement & expression is run in parallel" (Kind, ParaSail, BMDFM, DawnCC - actually not a new language but a smart compiler supporting even non-uniform platforms like big.LITTLE, ... ) through channel/pipe-based parallelism (Dao, Go, V, POSIX sh, Til, ...) to non-builtin support (i.e. pthreads, actors, structured concurrency or nurseries, etc.).

  • Isn't this more of a transpiler than a programming language?

    Isn't this more of a transpiler than a programming language?

    I saw that your code generates C instead of assembly. Doesn't this make it a transpiler, rather than a compiler? Also, it will be as fast as C when you generate C :).

    when i do not give a function all the arguments needed, the c++ compiler will give me errors. Peregrine should check this and give an error not the c++ compiler. code

    	printf("arg: %d\n", arg)
