Hel: huangho's Experimental Language

Hel is my playground for learning and experimenting with language design and implementation. In its current incarnation (v0.3), it is an interpreter for a language with Lisp-like macros but with a more conventional syntax.

The file example.hel contains some example code.

Hel is still in initial stages of development.

For more information, see my blog.


You will need Chez Scheme. On Debian Testing, you can install it with:

sudo apt-get install chezscheme9.5

Then you can run:

  • To get an interactive prompt: chezscheme9.5 --script hel.scm -i
  • To run a Hel script: chezscheme9.5 --script hel.scm file.hel
