This repository is no longer being developed. The ARF language has since gone through several revisions and has been given a different name (FSPL), and the new version can be found here.

README of this repository:

The ARF programming language.

This is still under development and does not compile things yet. Once complete, it will serve as a temporary compiler that will be used to write a new one using the language itself.

The old repository can be found here.

ARF is a low level language with a focus on organization, modularization, and code clarity. Behind it's avant-garde syntax, its basically just a more refined version of C.

A directory of ARF files is called a module, and modules will compile to object files (one per module) using C as an intermediate language (maybe LLVM IR in the future).

Be sure to visit the wiki for more information.

Planned Features

  • Type definition through inheritence
  • Struct member functions
  • Go-style interfaces
  • Generics
  • A standard library (that can be dynamically linked)


  • File reader
  • File -> tokens
  • Tokens -> syntax tree
  • Syntax tree -> semantic tree
  • Semantic tree -> C -> object file
  • Figure out HOW to implement generics
  • Create a standard library
