Programming’s Bizarre Languages

1K Blog Marathon: Day 50

Programming Languages are the best and worst enemy of programmers. Learning one is an essential step to learn another, so IF (You.LearnItWrong == TRUE) {print “You will have a hard time sharpening your logic.”}.

Some languages are created with more “human-like” coding principles and syntax, but also, there are the “different thinkers” who created and used Esoteric Programming Languages – languages that by writing code, seems like your already debugging!

Let’s take a look at some of them! And please, enjoy!

Brainf*ck

Big Brain Behind: Urban Müller

Short Desc: This programming language will literally give every programmer a brain f*ck!

This minimalist language is intended for implementing on a “smallest possible compiler”.

How Bizarre? If you will happen to land upon one of it, you will only see 8 commands: ‘>’,’<’,’+’,’-‘, ‘.’, ‘,’, ‘[‘and ‘]’.

Code Snippet:

This will print “Hello World” and a newline to the screen:

++++++++[>++++[>++>+++>+++>+<<<<-]>+>+>->>+[<]<-]>>.>---.+++++++..+++.>>.<-.<.+++.------.--------.>>+.>++.

Ook!

Big Brain Behind: David Morgan-Mar

Short Desc: Hold on tight. Ready your jaws. This one is something to “Ook” for, why? This one, my friend, is a programming language designed for “orang-utans”! Yes, orang-utans! Aside from the two ‘o’s and a ‘k’, it is also related to Brainf*ck.

How Bizarre? It’s not that hard, by the way. It only have 3 syntax elements: 1. ‘Ook.’ 2. ‘Ook?’ 3. ‘Ook!’ Ookay?

Code Snippet:

This is the “Hello World” of this language:

Ook. Ook? Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook.
Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook! Ook? Ook? Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook. Ook.

BIT

Short Desc: This one gives the programmer a full access to all data for machine representation.

How Bizarre? This language is a ‘bit’ formal (get the pun? Me neither.)

It has 2 data types: 1. ‘Bit’. 2. ‘Address-of-a-bit’.

Code Snippet:

This prints “Hello World!” Please read until the end.

LOLCODE

Big Brain Behind: Adam Lindsay

Short Desc: This esoteric programming language is inspired by lolspeak. And if Ook! is a language for orang-utans, this one is for lolcats! Yes, cats!

How Bizarre? Using the compressed lolspeak, or the language of the lolcat meme, LOLCODE’s keywords are somewhat easy to read, and easy to laugh.

Code Snippet:

For the plot to take over the world, this is the “Hello World!” of this one.

HAI 1.2
CAN HAS STDIO?
VISIBLE "HAI WORLD!"
KTHXBYE

Pikachu

Big Brain Behind: Nilabhro Datta

Short Desc: An esoteric programming language created for the purpose of “catching ‘em all!”, I mean to be used by  – you guess it right! Pikachu!

How Bizarre? Pikachu recognizes only 3 syntax: 1. ‘pi’. 2. ‘pika’. 3. ‘pikachu’. It also has 2 stacks, ‘pi pikachu’ and ‘pika pikachu’.

Code Snippet:

This code will print “HELLO WORLD” to the screen, along with a thunderbolt!

These are only 5 of the bizarre programming languages on Earth, at least. If you want a BIT of BrainF*ck and if its Ook! to challenge your skills, go for it! Laugh out loud in your LOLCODE while talking to your Pikachu!

“And that’s one blog, stay hungry!”

“There is unique pleasure in introducing the bizarre and inconceivable to others.”
