New repo.

Check it out. I like google code better than sourceforge for svn type stuff. That's the main reason I started using it. Other than that sf is much better :P
Anyway, you should expect more activity /finally/.
To compile the source you're going to need the FPC compiler.

Meet Stan!

Stan is out new mascot! He is an Emu.
Imo he looks pretty good (probably because I'm the one who drew him xD)
What do you guys think?
Is it pretty close to the wikipedia article's Emu?
He was created using mypaint(mainly), Gimp, and Inkscape.


A real Emu
As for other news. I'm going to reach for the sky, get rid of the "Scripting Language" idea and make it a "Dynamic Programming Language". In other words it will end up being as powerful as Python, Perl, Ruby, you name it!

Re-Writing and other news...

Okay, so I finally open my Bizarre source code. Now usually the first thing you think is "Awesome, can't wait to get back to this!". The first thing I thought was "yuck". The code is a mess. I thought Pascal was an elegant language :P Anyway, I'm going to rewrite Bizarre (I didn't get very far so don't worry) to make the source code more readable. But that's not the only reason I'm recoding it. I'm going to set it up so that there is no shell (yet at least :P). You'll run a script such as "hello, world.bzr" through the interpreter. Without a shell you can't look up a tutorial, start typing, and get instant feedback but it will make it more convenient to code as well as use when you're making a program.

As for the other news goes I'm also changing the official mascot (did we even have one?). I still have no idea what it will be but this will mean a change in icon (I'll make sure everyone agrees to it! (isn't there only one potential user right now!?)).

If you have suggestions about a mascot (you would never realize how important those are!) please let me know!

New icon... Wooohoooo!

Yeah, I worked hard on this and finally came up with a satisfactory icon. I'll upload a screenshot :)
Tell me if you like it!

For other news the site is being re-styled, expect it to be updated in about a week...

No semicolen

I removed it to give Bizarre a more fluid feel.
You can now write a hello world program like this:

display: "Hello, world!"

and some others:

display: "Hello", ",", " ", "world", "!"

display:"H","e","l","l","o"","," ","w","o","r","l","d","!"

okay that last one was ridiculous but yeah, you get the point.
variable update:
IT'S ALMOST WORKING ONE ERROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay sorry about that but it's try, one error to leap and I'll be able to implement variables... then of course I've got to do different types of variables and lists. I'm thinking for variables and array:
1. string
2. integer
3. floating point
and for File I/O (it will be stored in a variables <b>not</b> in arrays :3):
1. TextFile
2. BinFile
what do you think?

Parked in the station...

Okay, unfortunately Bizarre is going to be parked from now until close to the end of the summer. What i mean by parked is that I'm pausing it for a while. I'm pausing it because i'm:
a. Really busy, I have to study etc...
b. Traveling over the summer
c. I highly doubt I'll have time to do much programming over the summer :(
Also, I may not be on Coders' Shed that much either, just when I get to a hotel with free internet :P

Errors, errors, and more errors

aww, just when I thought I got variables working I get a crash :(
Got to keep developing :P
edit: aww I got so far but am baffled at what the error could mean.
I'm falling back to "Pre Alpha 1.5" :3
Of course this means I have to start afresh.

Variables are hard to implement.
I'm using dynamic arrays and this method:
