ZPE is a compiler and interpreter in one. It's designed to make it easier to learn to program.
The main focus of the Zenith Parsing Engine and ZenLang is usability. It focuses on a clean language that requires very little thought and accepts typing errors within the compiler.
ZenLang is an easy-to-learn programming language that takes inspiration from many other languages out there.
Thanks to the way in which the Zenith Parsing Engine is written, users can access any particular feature of the compiled runtime with a single line entered into the command line.
This allows users to compile, interpret, analyse or print their code in an abstract tree without even needing to run the executable.
The Zenith Parsing Engine is efficient and clean - generating only the output you request and in the most efficient way possible.
ZenLang is flexibily written to make unnecessary symbols and tags optional whilst adding extra ones to make the language read more like English.
ZenLang is small and compact to make it easier to share scripts.
Compilation time for the Zenith Parsing Engine is at it's best. Interpreting speed is also incredibly fast. All of this leads to the best interpreter for the ZenLang language to date.
The ZenLang language is designed to parse quickly and in comparison to the predecesor language, BRS, ZenLang compiles and interprets nearly twice as quickly.
The Zenith Parsing Engine includes 140+ built in methods that can be directly called from ZenLang language.
Between all of these methods, nearly every possible base has been covered, ensuring a sound foundation for your program.
The Zenith Parsing Engine and it's associated language have been written in the platform independent Java programming language. This means that programs compiled on a Mac will work on a Linux or Windows machine and vice versa.
The following is an example of ZenLang syntax. Can you guess what it does?
$names = ["John", "Jack", "Jamie"] for each ($names as $name) print ($name) end for
ZenLang takes inspiration from the best of many other languages, so learning it will be like something you may have come across before.
Inspiration for ZenLang syntax was drawn from VB.NET, PHP, Python, Java, C, SML amongst many other languages.
The Zenith Parsing Engine and the accompanying ZenLang are free forever. This includes updates and patches, as well as the open source libraries that will be released in the future.
It's completely free forever. Not a penny. Not a cent. Not a sen. Not a paisa. Free.
