don't be silly. Logic gates are written in transistor logic.

Well this is really sweet, but i would have to learn another language D:, Just if C++ or Java ran on CC :3

This is so awesome i wrote a variable dedicated to it:
awesome = "LASM"
Someone needs to make a C++ compiler.

Awwwesome ! I'll try it when Java is installed on my Fedora :)

Lambda Calculus FTW

I've done only a little research on Lambda Calculus, but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with digital logic. Do you mean Boolean Algebra?
Edit: Unless your joke is that the abstraction level is recursive in nature (although it's not really unless you account for digital logic simulation).

@OnTopic: I wish I had the time to work on some high-level compiler that uses this. Maybe I'll just make a mathematical expression compiler. I'm sure many people would find that useful.

I'll be fair, at first I was sceptical about this, but after having a quick read, you've managed to do a decent job.

Thanks. In terms of proper compiler structure, the parsing phase could be a bit more powerful. But LASM's a basic enough language that I don't mind that. I am working on a compiler infrastructure for Lua though. Plan on making a Lua compiler with it =P That way I can add new language features. Plus with the infrastructure will make it much easier for other people to write compilers for other languages.

Wow. You made a programming language INSIDE a programming language. Nice work.
That isn't something special. Lua, python and lots of other programming languages are written in other programming languages.
I meant in ComputerCraft. Not in languages outside CC.

Technically it's a programming language assembled in an assembler written in a programming language running on a virtual machine written in a language that runs on a virtual machine which itself is written in another language.
What has (computer) science done?

Sorry cleaned out my paste bin and must've accidentally deleted this. Re-uploaded and posted the new link on the OP. Should work now.

Unfortunately, jLua breaks this entire system.
Can't even term.write.
Spoiler

When I went in to investigate the cause, I came across a wonderful surprise. When you string.dump(loadstring("term.write("Hello world"))) and then re-run the result of the dump, it'll error out with messages similar to this: http://puu.sh/m7Mk8/277377ef4b.png

You can't even compile this without breaking jLua:
Spoiler

Bytecode is officially broken with jLua / CC and can only perform primitive tasks.

There is a possible fix though!
Someone could make a new function to read Lua Bytecode as it is Supposed to be read, and that'll essentially fix those problems. I may take a look into that so I can get this oh-so-neat program to run. (Though is it just mean, or does this program have a Lua Chunk Spy vibe to it?)

Going along into the long list of bugs: (Edit 12/27/15)

If you would like to interpret the bytecode it would be easier to start with my friend's lua interpreter in lua: https://github.com/ds84182/LuaVM
Id probably look into this more if i had an instance with the latest CC, if its simply dumping the bytecode with the wrong endianess i could write a simple recompiler for it

Oh god no... My worst nightmare: Assembler in CC.
But seriously, this is pretty freaking awesome. Think of all the languages we could build on top of this...
