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

@brandon I think it’s Racket whose marketing tagline is this. Also, I know that Rust’s first compiler was written in OCaml.


@IslandUsurper Wow, you would think a C successor-like language would be written in C :P

@brandon, eh, considering the problems they are trying to solve, I don’t think it’s that surprising it wasn’t In C first.
