Phoenix -- The Arabic Object-Oriented Programming Language

24 May 2019  ·  Bassil Youssef ·

A computer program is a set of electronic instructions executed from within the computer memory by the computer central processing unit. Its purpose is to control the functionalities of the computer allowing it to perform various tasks... Basically, a computer program is written by humans using a programming language. A programming language is the set of grammatical rules and vocabulary that governs the correct writing of a computer program. In practice, the majority of the existing programming languages are written in English-speaking countries and thus they all use the English language to express their syntax and vocabulary. However, many other programming languages were written in non-English languages, for instance, the Chinese BASIC, the Chinese Python, the Russian Rapira, and the Arabic Loughaty. This paper discusses the design and implementation of a new programming language, called Phoenix. It is a General-Purpose, High-Level, Imperative, Object-Oriented, and Compiled Arabic programming language that uses the Arabic language as syntax and vocabulary. The core of Phoenix is a compiler system made up of six components, they are the Preprocessor, the scanner, the parser, the semantic analyzer, the code generator, and the linker. The experiments conducted have illustrated the several powerful features of the Phoenix language including functions, while-loop, and arithmetic operations. As future work, more advanced features are to be developed including inheritance, polymorphism, file processing, graphical user interface, and networking. read more
