Brainf*ck

http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/bf/

I was told years ago to take a look at brainf*ck, I encountered it this morning. Why do people think BF is an unpleasant language, it's not that bad, it's nice and simple. I've used assembly (and machine code for that matter) before, and BF doesn't seem to be anyn worse.

Yup

I quite agree. Just because it looks "scary" because of a couple of symbols? It's really not that hard. It just does the very basics. That doesn't mean it's great to write big programs in of course :)

I've been playing with Brainf*ck (and Befunge93) just last week actually :)

In the end of the first-year Formal languages and automata course, there was a part about Turing machines, and exercises on writing programs on paper. I was thinking then how nice it would be if the students could actually do some programming - in BF - because it's just about identical, and more exciting for students than just paperwork.
