About LDPL

What is LDPL?

LDPL (Lartu's Definitive Programming Language) is a programming language designed from the ground up to be excessively expressive, fast, readable and easy to learn. It mimics English in the likeness of the good parts of older languages like COBOL, with the desire that it can be understood by anybody. It's highly portable and runs on a plethora of different architectures and operating systems including AMD-64, ARMv8 and PowerPC Linux and Mac OS X. It also supports UTF-8 out of the box.

name is text # Your name goes here!
display "Hello World" crlf "What's your name? "
accept name
display "你好, " name "! Welcome to LDPL!" crlf

LDPL also aims to suppress unreadable code and redundancy by only having one way of doing everything. What a command does should never overlap with the purpose of another and, as such, every LDPL command does one and only one thing. Every line is a step further towards the completion of an algorithm, no more, no less.
