Known as one of the most smallest and least known programming language, is quite an interesting take.
Regardless of whether you are a decent coder or a geek, most probably chances are you that you too are unaware of the least known and used programming language.
BrainFuck is an Esoteric Programming Language, it consists of only 8 Simple Commands and an Instruction Pointer. It was Created by Urban Muller in 1993, Just to Challenge the Programmers. Brainfuck is not suitable for practical or real time applications. .
What and Why?
Brainfuck was Created by Urban Muller with Intention of Creating Smallest Possible Compiler. Below are the Eight Commands in BrainFuck :
- – Increment the data pointer
- < – Decrement the data pointer
- – Increment
- – – Decrement
- – Output the Byte
- – Accept Input of One Byte
And not to forget the last two: [ and ]
That’s all we have on this short and sweet programming language. Interesting fast is that being the smallest language it is challenging exercise for coders. Do give it a try and let me know your experiences if you do.
