Upcoming Features in Keg+

You know, seeing as how I'm currently working on the interpreter for the next iteration of Keg, I figured I might tell of some new and improved features:

  • Strings! (Delimited by `, ¶, "/' (those fancy ones), and 2 other characters I don't have on my phones keyboard)
  • String Compression
  • Dictionaries/mappings
  • New data types and cohesion (integers, characters, strings and stacks)!
  • Indexing
  • Built-in function library
  • Predefined constants
  • A standard sequence library

And a bit more! All coming as soon as I finish the interpreter and the docs.

Don't worry... Keg is staying the same way it is! Keg+ will be completely independent of Keg, with a separate page and github repo.

Implicit Input

That's coming soon.

Regarding multiple-digit numbers

Hi there! I have a little suggestion. I think that Keg should have space-delimited terms, as to differentiate "ten" from "one and zero", or "forty-three" from "four and three".
E. g.

4 3 2 1 + + + (=10)
43 21 + (=64)

Keg+ Backwards compatibility issue and Keg lengthy code issue

Is Keg+ backwards compatible with Keg? If so, this might make it easier to learn. --A (talk) 04:46, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

I believe if Keg implemented non-reversed input, then programs might be more flexible. So, I decided to implement non-reversed input for the : command.

I'll post the language design specs soon so you can see what you like and don't like. Also, I believe it will be mostly backwards compatible. Hey, that's a good meme! JonoCode9374 (talk) 01:30, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
I essentially only care about the length of programs, and the features in it if that makes programs longer; I will only extend the language and not minify the language.

Does this sound nice? --A (talk) 21:27, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Sounds pretty Gucci to me Hey, that's a good meme! JonoCode9374 (talk) 01:30, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
