About

Hi! I'm Richard a University Student interested in building Software and making it interesting for the user! I am interested in NLP (Natural Language Processing) and the ideas behind compiler and programming language design. I also do work on web development both the frontend and backend.

Projects

2023

I made a brainfuck interpreter using Rust! All with a Lexer, Parser and error reporting.
A Lexer tokenises a .bf file and returns a set of tokens which we can parse and run the program logic. The Parser looks over the tokens and performs the specified operations.
I didn't use an AST but that could be a fun thing for the future.

Side Projects

Simple Build Tool for auto tracking C files in a C project.
