We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I've started a project for another program called GameMaker, in which I am currently writting my own language which will translate into a valid GameMaker project.
I've come to realize that my language is 99% the same as processing. So I wondered, instead of writing my own language and my own compiler, would it be possible for me to modify the processing compiler so that it compiles into another language?
My goal is to do something similar to what Trypescript, Stylus or Sass are currently doing: Code in a very nice feature-full language ( processing in this case ), then compile into the target language.
Do I have the rights to modify the compiler so that it compiles into another language, and if I do, what would be the best way to start? I've never collaborated with github before ( but I used github a lot, alone ).
Thanks for anyone for giving me answers!
