Is there a programming language whose purpose is for writing programming languages?

@gopiandcode This is far beyond any of my technical ability to understand holy crap. I've never felt so damn dumb

@brandon Don't worry, if you're unfamiliar with the terminology from PL then it's understandable how it might be overwhelming.

If you're interested, just read Types and programming languages, which should give you an introduction to this style of language specification, after which it should be parsable.
