    Making a compiler isn't truly that hard. But I also don't know what sort of compiler you are making. Compiling assembly code into an exe is really straight forward. C/C++, Pascal, Fortran (and all the others) is a little more challenging because the compiler is expected to generate the assembly code. JAVA, J#, and C# and all those languages shouldn't be too hard to compile.

    You can find some tools to write a compiler or to construct your own language here:

    Trivial, huh?
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
