Nice! I'll follow you so I'll get a notification when you're able to put it together. I definitely know about things taking longer than I thought they would.

I found this article because I'm in the process of building a quick-and-dirty interpreter for my own language (in JavaScript because it's easy and it's the language I know best) just for fun, and a lot of what you wrote here has been helpful.

I'll probably write a fuller implementation in another language once I have a working prototype for myself, and C++ is a possibility. I don't know C++ very well though, so it would be quite a challenge.
