Converts easy to read/write BELL code to Java
Current Version: v0.2
What is BELL?
BELL which stands for
is a very simple language for absolute beginners and people who are not good at computers to write very simple interactive applications.
I have created this language after seeing my computer illiterate father trying to build a simple console program with Visual C++. After helping him myself, I thought of a simpler language to begin teaching to computer "newbies" and such as we should give everyone, new, young or old a chance to make their own programs.
Okay, so what's BELLconverter?
BELLconverter is a converter that converts BELL code to Java code. This allows computer newbies to write in BELL code where they can pass it to a friend who knows Java and can add more elements into it and fine tune it.
It isn't necessary though, the person would just have to compile the outputted Java file
How to use it
Using the syntax of: java BELLconverter sample.bell sample
Then : javac sample.java
An compiled java class will be outputted: sample.class
Which can be run with: java sample
However, I have also included a quick_converter bat file, which will automatically run the converted and javac just by dragging the need BELL file onto the quick_converter bat file.
How does a BELL file look like?
As of v0.2, this sample incorporates all available functions (not alot... yet)
write This is a sample BELL file. write Please Input Your Name: let name be empty ask-for name write Nice, great to meet you %name%
This sample is from the sample.bell in the Git Repo.
It is readily convert-able into a Java file which can be immediately compiled into a class file.
