قلب’s site is online with a description of the project and some sample code. It will grow into a full site soon, so keep an eye on it!
For those having trouble with the internationalized domain name, the site is mirrored at http://qlblang.org/, although this is certainly not the preferred method of access.
قلب: لغة برمجة
The name I’ve chosen for my Arabic programming language is قلب. It is pronounced Qlb (or ‘Alb in the Levantine Arabic I speak) and it is a recursive acronym standing for قلب: لغة برمجة, pronounced Qlb: Lughat Barmajeh. The full title translates to “Heart: A Programming Language” in English (although this ruins the acronym and is no fun).
Acronyms in Arabic are notoriously difficult to do. قلب is great because it doen’t ignore any word prefixes and is the only recursive Arabic acronym I am aware of.
Who said everything’s been invented?
