Programming idea for Assyrians :)
« on: May 03, 2015, 04:41:05 PM »
what would you computer science fans think about the C and C++ programming language translated to Sureth? :)

here's an example in C :3

Tell me what you guys think.

Here's how it works

#include is "ytow" meaning sit

int main() is "min resha". Min is short for minya aka number aka int!
Resha means head so that should be self explanatory :)

and "return 0;" is mader meaning return itself.

I believe this can help Assyrians get into computer science alot easier without having to learn english!

Meh, every useful library is still going to be written in English and there are a lot of programming concepts that need to be learned in English anyway before you can write anything useful in C. Creating some high-level scripting language like Python or Ruby would be better as an introduction to programming for Assyrians. But again, you would run into the issue of no libraries for general purpose programming

edit: if you're really sold on the idea, take a look at this http://www.chinesepython.org/english/english.html. For beginner's I would still say python or ruby first (I like Ruby better but I think Python is easier)

The point isn't for Assyrians to learn programming, the point is to make our language a little more stronger by translating computer languages into Sureth.

You would still run into the issue that every library is written in English. So your interpreter would have to parse for both English and Assyrian if you actually go down this route

edit: You would also have to decide if you want to integrate the language with an IDE or what the development environment would be

How do you know that Assyrians won't translate or write their own libraries?

Because, frankly, I think it's a waste of time.

It's better to encourage people to use existing languages and frameworks to develop new innovate applications. Assyrians this way can learn something useful and potentially make a career out of it, empowering them. Also, Assyrians who actually start making money off of something they develop can hire outside help more easily if it's a language already standardized.

If Assyrians waste their time writing libraries to just copy existing functionality and reproduce it for the sake of having different syntax...I just don't see it going anywhere. There's little value derived from it

ok then by your idea, we should simply copy English C to Assyrian C by simply translating the libraries.

I don't see what's so wrong with that. C is popular because of how low its abstraction is and how fast it is.

It's basically one level above Assembly languages. Translating such simplicity into our language can really aspire many Assyrian computer science and programming majors.

I meant can you find a simpler way to explain this? Like in layman's terms. We're not programmers, you know.

it's a language that uses entirely the Sureth alphabet. This would allow us to create our own systems in our own way.
