See more: VB.NET compiler
I know this is going to sound a bit strange. But I have a question that tricks me.
Last Month, I have been trying to make an interpreter of my own with the name UCI made in Borland C++. It uses My own technology called Parallel Hexa Conversion and fortunately, was a success. Now I would like to make a Compiler version of it with implemented GUI . But the Problem is how will i convert and check the Program Entered by the user? Tobe more precise, how will I make the Script Editor.
I will have to use a textbox. But how will I check for syntax and do the conversion line by line or word by word or letter by letter. In the C++ version, I just used char array and converted it word by word. Please give something Useful. I am kind of new to VB.

You probably should read a good book on compiler construction.
The "Dragon Book"[^] is a good (theoretical) one.
On the other hand, for an informal, practical approach, I suggest the Crenshaw's Let's buld a compiler[^].
There are also some 'compiler generator tools' available (ANTLR[^] being probably the most famous).
