Info: it the most difficult current programming language, though not the most difficult possible one. Malbolge, for those not familiar with it, is a language designed to be have so far have expressed an interest in programming in Malbolge!. Malbolge is a programming language invented by Ben Olmstead in , named after the eighth circle of hell in Dante’s Inferno. The name was.

Most, however, do represent a malbolgd serious attempt at some exploration of the bare minimum of features necessary while still being Turing complete. That routine’s mission is to set up the memory just as needed. This is a gravatar-friendly website.

Its syntax is very loose to give the writer a greater freedom of expression. Scrolling this “code” makes my eyes out of my head. Despite this design, it is possible though very difficult to write useful Malbolge programs. I do agree that link-only answers are evil, though, so I’ll try to resist the urge in future answers. If the instruction to execute is not in the rangeexecution stops the reference interpreter hangs in this case due to a bug.

As an example, in the first memory position as well as in positions which are multiple of 94 the following instructions are allowed in the source code: Machine word is 10 trits ternary digits long, so it can store unsigned integers between 0 andinclusive.

If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for proggramming. Here’s a table malbolve these memory addresses modulo 94 allowing period-2 instructions where the second is a NOP, together with the instruction itself there are exactly two possible addresses for each of these instructions, so both are listed:. There are also “jokes” that you can do in “proper” programming languages.

There is a second category of the actual joke languages such as Malebolge and INTERCAL, neither of which is designed to be practical in any way whatsoever and have features that actively make them harder to use. Because Java forces you to. Most of the time, though, they are so impractical that they remain niche and esoteric. If [C] is not between 33 andinclusive, the instruction is invalid.


I was browsing through the languages and thought to myself “I’m pretty sure no-one has done a malbolge version of this” but someone actually has! This page was last edited on 21 Julyat Sounds weird, but seriously, this is an amazing thing.

Otherwise, in order to determine the actual instruction to execute, the value pointed to by the C register is added to the C register itself and the result divided by 94, taking the remainder. Depending on the result, the following instructions are executed:. Conclusion Esoteric languages like those included in this collection, are a way to propose and validate new ideas. Their syntax should be clear and understandable, and their implementations bug-free and fast.

Malbolge: an Esoteric Programming Language

The usual aim is to remove or replace conventional language features while still maintaining a language that is Turing-complete, or even one for which the computational class is unknown. Unlambda claims to be: Retrieved from ” https: Sometimes programming language designers create a language that goes against these principles, either as research or for fun. As I understand it Malbolge’s interpreter reverses two of the instructions.

The term normalized Malbolge was coined by Andrew Cooke as can be seen in the External resources section below.

Shakespeare and Chef are other nice examples. This is so far the most entertaining article that i’ve come across in any technical forums.

Jerry Coffin 40k 5 74 This is quite possible the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen on a computer since I first found out about Befunge and Malbolge a few years back Esoteric languages are really just mind exercises.

langyage It was invented by Tanner Swett in This program is something I thought to be impossible. The language is named after Malebolge [sic], the eighth level of hell in Dante’s Infernowhich is reserved for perpetrators of fraud.


ZZ bottles of beer through AA bottles of beer would output about bytes and be very similar in length, while proving without a doubt that it performs conditional jumps. Old-style Fortran is now well into its sixth decade. Chicken is not only the name of the language, but also the only keyword that is allowed in it! It has been argued that Malbolge is a bounded-storage machine BSM with interactive input; that is, that it is Turing-complete if one ignores its memory limitations and a finite-state automaton [FSA] if one does not.

Piet is a programming language in which programs are bitmaps which look like abstract paintings.

There’s only about 67 if I count correct output instructions — without looping that wouldn’t be enough to print even one verse of the song.

This page was last edited on 23 Decemberat Here’s an example of malbklge subprogram that stores the accumulator into a memory position, for the purpose of illustrating how the influence of the overhead malbole above applies to Malbolge programs. Instead of controlling the program flow with the code register, which means that all commands are written in their correct order filled with immutable NOPs, it is possible to control the program flow using the data register.

languqge Quite expectable for a complex Malbolge program. Please provide a value for the fields NameComment and Security Code. If the program has a character which is impossible to interpret as an instruction see later or a whitespace, it is rejected as a whole.

I do all my development in it and anyone who disagrees and doesn’t follow me is uncool. The store of the accumulator A into memory now consists of two steps:
