Say I invent a language, post a list of commands and general structure on GitHub, and then begin working on the interpreter. After finishing the interpreter, could I use this language to answer challenges posted before the interpreter was completed?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank-you, for some reason I couldn't find that, but I was pretty sure something of the type had to exist somewhere. \$\endgroup\$ – Gryphon Jun 7 '17 at 20:13
