Preamble:
I worked on Lizard since 8 years. Lizard differs significantly from other script languages, as you can see in the features below.
Lizard is very similar to the mathematical and scientific program Mathematica. Lizard should make it possible to carry out calculations, data analysis and much more with a small script without much code. At the moment I am only providing you with the Lizard.dll, its include file as well as some examples and a detailed documentation on Lizard. The publication of the source code is planned and since I don't use a Win-API, nothing should prevent a compilation on Linux!
Please test Lizard at this early stage and give me feedback on the current features. I would also like to explicitly thank the following people who probably didn't even know that they helped me: Helle (ASM optimization), CSHW89 (idea and division algorithm)

Download:
Lizard - Symbolic computation script language (Version 0.3.8-0012)
Contains the Lizard.dll (x64 and x86), the Lizard.pbi, some examples for the integration in Pure Basic and a detailed documentation for Lizard with many examples.
Lizard - Documentation (Documentation only, just for viewing)

Features of Lizard:
  • Full support of symbolic expression.
  • Support of arbitrary size integers.
  • Support of rational and complex numbers.
  • Full unicode character string and binary string support as well as unicode collation algorithm.
  • Support of polymorphic or anonymous functions.
  • Powerfull pattern matching engine for assignments and replacements.
  • Support of named parameters in functions.
  • High flexibility in work with subparts of strings, lists or general expressions.
  • Numerous conversion functions, supporting different number formats and string formats under consideration of endianness and digit base.

Details:
In Lizard everything, really everything, is an expression consisting of a head and any number of arguments. That means also object types themselves, e.g. lists or well-known keywords such as If, And etc. are again just expressions and can also be used again as such. This makes Lizard very flexible and powerful, but on the deep level it is also slower than usual script languages, in which these things are clearly separated and differentiated.

Here are some examples of the features (many more in the documentation):
  1. Code:
    In(1) := {2^100, 8/12, 1/4.0, (-2.0)^0.4}
    Out(1) = {1267650600228229401496703205376, 2/3, 0.25, 0.40775+1.25493*I}
  2. Code:
    In(2) := {3*x - 2*x, a && True && b, Sin(Pi/6)}
    Out(2) = {x, a && b, 1/2}
  3. Code:
    In(3) := Sort( {-3, 2, -1, 0, 4}, Abs(#1) <= Abs(#2) & )
    Out(3) = {0, -1, 2, -3, 4}
  4. Code:
    In(4) := Select( {1, 2, 3, 4, y, 2.2}, #^2 < 6 & )
    Out(4) = {1, 2, 2.2}
  5. Code:
    In(5) := Replace( a+b+c+d, a+d -> x )
    Out(5) = b + c + x
  6. Code:
    In(6) := {a,b,c,d,e}[2..-2]
    Out(6) = {b, c, d}
  7. Code:
    In(7) := "Hello World!"[-1..1..-1]
    Out(7) = "!dlroW olleH"
  8. Code:
    In(8) := Table(i^2, {i, -3, 3} )
    Out(8) = {9, 4, 1, 0, 1, 4, 9}
  9. Code:
    In(9) := ToString('\0a\x03» ¬', BinaryFormat->"UTF16", Endianness->1)
    Out(9) = "aλ€"
  10. Code:
    In(10) := Sort({"NINO", "Nina", "Nino", "Ninu", "Niño"})
    Out(10) = {"Nina", "Nino", "NINO", "Niño", "Ninu"}

Have fun during testing.

ChangeLog
  • 0.3.8-0012: x86 support!, small bug-fixes, two more examples for pure basic implementation, new Lizard-functions: Floor, Ceil, Trunc, Order
  • 0.3.8-0002: First publication

Just tried to test it and ... failed.

I use PB 5.73B4 x86
Maybe your included dll is x64.

The Library is for 64-bit processors only, I will add a CompilerError. Some parts are written in directly in ASM, and it would take some time to add 32-bit version.
But in my opinion in today's life 32-bit is not needed, isn't it?

@infratec: You have no 64 operating system or just using PB x86?
@Kwai chang caine: You started it also in 32-bit mode, or is it another failure?

I develop software for companies and ...

they use Win7, 8 and 10 and on some PCs cause of old database programs still WinXP.
To avoid different versions, I still compile only for x86 on windows.

Code is smaller, compatibility is higher, I can not measure any speed advantages.

For linux and OSX I use the 64bit compiler, because linux users always use the latest technology
and OSX users had no chance to decide :mrgreen:

@infratec:
I see. I will take a look, how the source code can be made compatible with x86.

Very impressive, and very well done! Image
Thank you so much for this!

Yes :oops:
I have W10 X64 but i continue to use PB X86 for be sure of the maximum compatibility with another persons, like say INFRATEC :wink:

sorry to ask, but is there any comparasion between Lizard and https://github.com/symengine/symengine ?
or they are absolutely 2 different things?

32-bit is still very current in these times. Don't forsake it.

Let's take the replies from infratec and KCC: both report it failed. Now, imagine they were non-PureBasic users who know nothing about computers: their reaction would be that your software is junk, buggy, and sucks - and will move on, and possibly even bad-mouthing it to anyone who asks about such a product in future. In other words, you get one chance to make a good impression and you've just blown it, and your reputation as a competent coder for those users is in the toilet. Why on earth would you do that?

Look at this comment on StackOverflow -> https://stackoverflow.com/a/41497867/7908170

And look at what the comment recommends to do:

Quote:
Rather than making a commitment to either 32-bit or 64-bit when it comes to distributing your executable, you can do both: [...] have a 32-bit executable that contains the 64-bit binary as an embedded resource, and runs like so:

1. Is this a 32-bit OS? If so, then run as normal.
2. Otherwise, it's a 32-bit process on a 64-bit system, so extract the 64-bit .exe version to a temporary directory.
3. Start the extracted 64-bit version.
4. Self-terminate.

Sounds like the best plan to me. (Although, I'd extract the 64-bit to the same directory, instead of a temp one, to avoid anti-virus tools from panicking).

I can not judge. Where can I find a list of the features of symengine or any documentation?


@BarryG:
Thanks for your comment. I also realized that 32-bit is still important.
Even though Lizard has less potential in 32-bit mode, I now offer also 32bit version.

That works nice here !
I like the console mode :wink:
Thanks for sharing 8)

https://github.com/symengine/symengine is a C++ version of https://www.sympy.org

the feature of https://www.sympy.org can be found on https://www.sympy.org/en/features.html
however I don't know whether symengine has covered all features of sympy or not

Thanks for the link.
To coming back to the original question: "but is there any comparison between Lizard and symengine"?:
Yes, the main intention is quite similar: The support of a computer algebra system (CAS).
However, the range of functionality of such CAS is currently quite small in Lizard, especially compared to sympy.
On the other hand, I would say Lizard has also some additional features like the pattern matching or the string handling, because Lizard is (and should) not only limited to the math area.
I saw that sympy also supports the "Wild"-symbol for pattern patching, similar to my Any-symbol, but I haven't read exactly what control you have with it, like my AnySequence or the attributes like Orderless or Flat.

I know Lizard is not completely new, of cause not. But at the end it also depends on the syntax which language you (somebody) choose, if the features are similar. Do you have experience with symengine or sympy?
