Brainfuck interpreter and code generator
A Python package that provides a Brainfuck interpreter and code generator modules. It also provides command line utility.
Interpreting a Brainfuck code file is as easy as:
$ pybf -i code.bf
Or from standard input:
$ echo "+++++++++++." | pybf -i -
To generate Brainfuck code that will reproduce any content you supply:
$ echo "hello world" | pybf -g -
To install it using pip all you have to do is:
$ pip install pybf
To install it using the provided setup.py file, you’ll need to install distutils first and then issue the following command:
$ python setup.py install
The interpreter by default will reserve 30000 1-byte cells but you can change that by supplying the -s with the desired value.
The Brainfuck code generator by default reserves 16 cells, memory size here is a trade-off between optimizing (for size) between big and small input as with more reserved cells the bigger Brainfuck (loop) initialization code will be and less Brainfuck instructions to reproduce 1 byte. The opposite goes for increasing the number of reserved cells as the initialization code will be smaller but there will be more instructions to reproduce 1 byte.
