##### Enhanced BF
« on: October 07, 2011, 08:05:25 am »
Hello all,

After making a Brainf*ck interpreter located here, I thought it would be interesting if I improved the language and made it on par with most other languages.

So I ask you all, what do you want to see added to the language? So far my ideas are a second array of 30000 bytes that can be accessed for things like memory addresses, conditions, etc.

Here are some symbols I might add

{//For
}//EndFor
://If
;//EndIf
|//Goto
'//Write value

I might call this new language, Mindf*ck!

Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

but isn't brainf*ck supposed to be bare-bones and really hard to use?
IMO, adding that stuff would kinda ruin the point

It'd still be ridiculously hard to use. The difference would be that you could actually make stuff with it. I support this.

a lack of for loops limits it ALOT...

lol I plan on having a small interpreter. (loops and such are EASY to emulate) And it will still be semi difficult (BF actually isn't all that hard imo)

I just want to actually be able to DO what you want it to do.

I just need ideas to implement.

What? Regular brainf*ck has For loops...

Code: [Select]
++++[>+<-] is equivalent to For(4){+}
Also, using goto makes conforming to the original BF spec very difficult because it's difficult to confirm that each open bracket has a closing bracket.

PS: What do = and ' do? If = copies the value at the byte pointed to by the current memory cell into the current memory cell, then I think it's an excellent addition to the language.

I'd like to point out that BrainF*ck is turing-complete. What this means is that anything that can be done on any modern computer, can be done in BrainF*ck.

If you had a lot of time to spare, it is, by definition, possible to factor the Nspire OS key using only BrainF*ck.

The only things brainf*ck requires (do we actually need to censor this here at Omnimaga?) is subroutines.

I have no idea how to implement.

I'm thinking that when it checks it will skip goto statements for it.

Using goto will effectively allow for subroutines to be written. I'll just have to have a return command.

It will copy the value at the current cell to the cell pointed to by the corresponding cell in the other array. (MF will have two corresponding arrays for this kind of purpose)

' will just read the value in the current cell without the conversion to ASCII. So a 4D in the cell will print 4D or it's decimal counterpart.

Okay, I'll modify my definition of "you" to exclude those gifted with extraordinary patience, extraordinary intelligence, and ESP.

Interesting site I found listing different derivatives of BF. I might get some rather nice ideas off these!

@topic title: Enhanced Boyfriend?

J/k I think brainfuck was definitively made purposely hard to use, so if it was enhanced to be easier, it would kinda defeat its point, as pointed above

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Brainf*ck was actually designed to have the smallest compiler possible for a Turing complete language.

Meh, I would forego a return command in favor of having control over the PC (slightly more esoteric than simple call and return instructions).
# to load the PC into the current cell
@ to load the current cell into the PC

But then, whilst trying to make a shitty example, I realized this would make maintaining brainfuck code even more difficult without some form of labels.

I actually have no intent on following the original principles of BF. (If you want a hard language to use, just use original BF)

I just want to increase it's functionality in order to make it do cooler things without extreme patience.
