The problem with such a thing is that to run your interpreter you
would need an existing interpreter (written in C/Java or other
language).  The only languages that can be implemented in themselves
are compiled languages like C and C++.

What experimenting are you planning on doing?  Python does have an
'eval' function that will evaluate the given python code.
