Obscure Programming Language Sunday, August 20, 2006

I was doing some research on quines this weekend and while doing so I stumbled across several obscure programming languages that I was not previously familiar with. The following is actual code I wrote that will compile and run (it isn't a quine)...


Do you know what language that is? A few hints...

  • The language is composed of just 8 commands, each expressed with a single character (7 are used in the program above)

  • Whitespace is insignificant

  • The language is "Turing-Complete"

  • The language has a colorful name (if you reply to this, you may use the initials to avoid the offensive word)
