  • I really don't like the '#' operator. It is against the Brainf*ck nature. Brainf*ck is supposed to be difficult to write and making the coding tools like '#' available is going to make Brainf*ck way too easy to program. Imagine all these 13-year-olds coding Brainf*ck straight after they have grasped Basic... definately something we do not want. Brainf*ck has been a language for those elite few who have enough stupidity and stubborness to spend about an hour to write a simple Hello, World!. Brainf*ck has been the language of die-hard brainfuckers like me since 1993 and the whole purpose of the language is that it should be difficult to write in. Dumping the memory array is for wimps. Next you will want a simple way to reset the whole memory array...oh wait... you HAVE done this with '~' operator... Where is the world coming to?
  • The '~' operator also is useless and just adds syntactic sugar and makes the language more complicated than it should be. I mean you can easily erase the contents of the memory cell by a simple - so there is no need to reinvent the wheel especially when tools in the Brainf*ck language are available itself and there is no need to add these new features. Again, it makes programming Brainf*ck way too easy...

  • I hear what you're saying. That's why I made the extra instructions entirely optional and only switched on by a special pragma. # I've seen in other implementations. At least one web page says it is a "common" extension. As I wanted to try out implementing pragmas, it seemed like a good one. ~ I agree is just sugar. It was implemented for the same reasons as above. But like I said, its' all optional. Btw I'm also thinking about adding ` as an optional comment character (i.e ignore everything from there up to the end of the line.) How's that for blasphemy? :-)

    No support for nested loops. This is a big one. As far as I can see there is no support for nested loops in your implementation (or am I wrong?).

    Tell me more. How would you want that to work? Some sort of stack? Labels?

    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

    • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
    • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
      <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
    • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
    • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
