I was looking on the good ole wiki, searching for diffrent programming languages and i found this. If i ever had a bunch of spare time i might try to learn it, it only has eight commands, and thats it. < > + - . , [ ]! i thought it was interesting. i like the name to. BrainF*ck

Stuff... Yeah...

That is the weirdest, most random thing I have ever seen.

There was a huge topic on DevCrunch about Brainf**k. Old news. But keep looking on Wiki.

really, hmm, i dont ever look on the off topic seciton over there. but im sure there are still people here might want to know!

Stuff... Yeah...

The concept is pretty cool. It looks so simple, but as it's all symbols, it must be really hard to learn!!!!

It was in the 'other language' section.

It would be pretty pointless to try to code in it, it's just too hard. Less characters just makes it way harder. But you should look at Whitespace too.

The most complex example of BrainF**k code I've ever seen is a Towers of Hanoi program (found in dark depths of Wikipedia links, somewhere). It's pretty obvious nobody ever intended this to be used seriously.

The interesting thing about this language is that it is descended from a programming language called Turing, which (surprisingly) was Turing-complete. Turing and BrainF**k are pretty much the most minimalistic languages possible under the definition.

Well, thats the whole fun of it, to give your self a challenge.

Hmm, I did once write a quick input program in it for a Computing Project...more hassle than it is worth though.

Are you sure that isn't modem line noise?

Heh, nope, thats the code!

why not just use hieroglyphics and runestones!?

if theses languages are so cool...then give us some examples and with some comments and explanations.

shades of Spin! *sigh*

"Well, thats the whole fun of it, to give your self a challenge."

There is a big difference between difficult and a touch off impossible. With all the effort it would take to learn and master, you could have probably learnt Assembly.

alright Columbo

true. and as well as C programming and with inline assembly capability too. but please no Spin!...thank you.


cheers,

I can imagine where the name BrainF*ck came from... Trying to learn that would be like poking a hole in your head.

It's easy enough to learn... there are only 8 commands after all. But using it, well, that might fuck your brain.

Yayyak
Well, your code beats mine...

Before I scrolled down, I simply expected the program to output the health warning with a note: 'Don't be so silly.'

Lol.
