    If you want to make your own language, you should start by looking at some of the other programming languages around. Many are not the same -- take a look at Scheme, Ruby, Forth, Joy, Lisp, Io, and maybe some esoteric ones like Ook!

    You don't need a compiler; you only need an interpreter, which is easier.

    If you create an RPN calculator, you are not far from creating a programming language. This happened to me accidentally. Looking up what "RPN" means is up to you, though.

    You could also make up a scripting language, and just make a program that will run it. Kinda like how HTML and such works, it's not actually compiled, just saved as a file, and read in, based on the input do whatever. Sort of what Rashakil was talking about as an interpreter, just basically reads in text and parses it and "runs" it.

    HTML is not a scripting language, nor a programming language. It is, as it's name explicitly says, a markup language. It's used for documents. Perhaps a more appropriate analogy might be PHP.
