Epic Brainfuck Interpreter
You thought Brainfuck was bad? Think again. Get ready to meet…
Contrary to many other codebases, this repository is not just about writing yet
another Brainfuck compiler. Just search “brainfuck” on GitHub, and you’ll see
just how many people have already written compilers, and how many different languages
it has been written in. It’s incredible for a language so basic and rudimentary, how
much attention it has garnered over the years. Indeed, it is quite the brainteaser to
write stuff using only eight characters.
However, “brainteaser” is perhaps a euphemism for the language’s actual name, so I began
to think: how can I crank up the “brain-teasing” if you’d like and make this language even
more difficult to work with? The answer? Who said that > means ++ptr, where ptr points
to an “infinitely long” char array? Why can’t we use other characters to signify that? And who
said we needed to have concrete aliases for these bits of C code? This is where this
Brainfuck package deviates from most. Not only did I write an interpreter for
“traditional” Brainfuck code, but I also wrote several variants in which the syntax of
Brainfuck changes from interpretation to interpretation. Toss in some unexpected behaviors
(e.g. massive file write out of nowhere), and there you have it: EPIC Brainfuck shenanigans!
