Programming a Computer using Your Language

Jul 11, 03:03 PM

This is an introduction to Vaklipi, a system that lets you write programs and give instructions to a computer using English, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, French, Chinese, etc.

The Java command System.out.println(3×4+2) returns the answer 14. The same thing in Vaklipi would be What is 3 into 4 plus 2?

In German, it would be Was ist 3 mal 4 addiert zu 2?

Run program

Translate to: Kannada, English, Hindi, Tamil, French, German, Japanese or Chinese

  1. Use double quotes to quote something, not single quotes.
  2. Write numbers as roman numerals not as words.
  3. It doesn’t yet get coreferences (words like ‘it’ and ‘them’). Say ‘and increment x’, not ‘and increment it’.
  • Japanese & Chinese: Only pinyin & romaji are supported. Write と as ‘tho’.
  • Information: There is an infinite loop arrester present, with a limit of 1000 loops.
  • Limitations: The demo only supports 2 datatypes – numbers and strings. There are more on the way.
