Data operations:
|<delimiter>    split string on delimiter

$               indexing
i               turn into integer
c               turn into character (chr())
o               turn into ascii value (ord())

.               read from STDIN
!               write to STDOUT
w               working cell
s<number>       swap <number> var with w
><number>       push w to <number>
<<number>       pop <number> to w
<operation>><number> write output of previous operation to <number>
<number> can also be `w`, like sw
v<data>         put data in w
'...:           string data
{<condition>{...} loop
<number>+<number> add
<number>-<number> sub
<number>*<number> mul
<number>/<number> div
<number>%<number> mod
<number>=<number> equals
<expr>!=<expr>    neq
<expr><=<expr>    smaller
<expr>>=<expr>    bigger
