9.4.7 Writing New High-Level Languages

In order to integrate a new language lang into Guile’s compiler system, one has to create the module (language lang spec) containing the language definition and referencing the parser, compiler and other routines processing it. The module hierarchy in (language brainfuck) defines a very basic Brainfuck implementation meant to serve as easy-to-understand example on how to do this. See for instance for more information about the Brainfuck language itself.
