What is a URCL file?
A URCL file contains Universal Reduced Computer Language (URCL) source code that can be compiled into machine code. It stores a set of instructions in plain text in URCL syntax.
URCL is designed to be a flexible language that can be compiled to a variety of target languages. The language features "Core," "Basic," and "Complex" operations, which include function calls and multiplication/division equations that form the instruction sets of URCL.
You can create a URCL file with any text editor. When you save the file, save it with the .urcl file extension. You may need to instead save the file as a .TXT file, then manually change the .txt file extension to .urcl.
How do I open a URCL file?
You can compile a URCL file into machine code with various tools, such as URCL.NET or Haku's URCL framework.
You can also open and modify URCL files with source code and plain text editors. Microsoft Visual Studio Code (multiplatform) is a helpful source code editor that provides syntax highlighting capabilities (with the URCL plugin installed). You can also use Microsoft Notepad (Windows) or Apple TextEdit (macOS) to open and edit them, but these editors do not provide syntax highlighting.
