Learned to Build a simple pascal interpreter using python

Recently I was going through the series of ‘Let’s Build A Simple Interpreter‘ by Ruslan Spivak which was given by Sayan as an assignment of summer training. Here you can see the whole series codes. I have gone through all the parts and added what I have learned in the README.md file.

In this series the main focus was to build an simple pascal interpreter by python which can execute simple pascal codes like mathematical operations and procedure calling. This series introduced me lots of thing like scanner, token, parser, interpreter and grammar, etc. At first I was thinking that I will not be able to complete the series properly as I didn’t know anything about interpreter and compiler but as move forward in this series things get cleared because everything was elaborated properly. Whenever I stuck at any point I search it in the internet and try to find the proper solution. For me in this series the most interesting part was the grammar of any programming language and how they help.

In this series I also learned how to write better commits so people can understand my code and also learned how to reset my commit to previous commit when I commit wrong things or made any bad commit message. Here you can see my commits.

Thank you 🙂
