If one were to create their own language and documentation for the language, could they ask for a review on code they have written in their language as long as they provided a link or inline documentation?

    \$\begingroup\$ The short answer is, "So long as there's a compiler/interpreter". Otherwise, it's hypothetical code. \$\endgroup\$ – RubberDuck Apr 28 '15 at 0:00
  • \$\begingroup\$ @RubberDuck That post seems to be asking about posting code for an interpreter to a made up language. This is about posting code in that language itself, where the code might be FizzBuzz, for example. \$\endgroup\$ – SirPython Apr 28 '15 at 0:00

The asker would have do more than provide a link to documentation or inline documentation.

There needs to be an existing compiler or interpreter for the language. There needs to be a way for potential reviewers to actually run the code.

If the code cannot be compiled/interpreted and ran, then the code is nothing but a special syntax of pseudo-code.
