Started writing DEXT interpreter

A project log for DEXT Meteor:

The DEXT Meteor is a powerful and small FPGA computer with a unique OS.

DEXT is a scripting language for use with the DEXT computer (but is multiplatform) that is more powerful than the terminal.  The catch?  I need to write an interpreter.

I am writing the interpreter in C++ so that I can compile for the DEXT computer.  I came up with a simple program written in this early version of the DEXT language and interpreted it sucessfully!

There are only a few small parts of the language completed so far, but I'm doing good considering this is my first day working on the interpreter.

Here is what I have implemented:

  1. variables
  2. strings
  3. integers (only inc/dec operators for now)
  4. folder objects (only can create, not delete, for now)
  6. printing to the screen (a hello world program is possible!!)
  7. null object
