You still have to be a cryptography scientist to write a meaningful program in it, though. Only valid instructions and whitespace are allowed in the source, but a bug in the reference implementation makes it possible to enter instructions with a code greater thanwhich hang that interpreter if executed. Since the instructions are at addresses which form a 2-cycle, in the first execution all instructions will perform their function while in the second they will act as NOPs, then the cycle will start again.

They should introduce a Nobel Prize in computer science for you. This program is something I thought to be impossible. Your question answers itself: Here is a “Hello world! Retrieved from ” https: A piece of fine art. Initially all registers hold value of 0. Hisashi Iizawa, it appears that you have sold your soul to the devil in exchange for this ability.

The 10 Weirdest Programming Languages – Tutorialzine

Go to your language’s section and post your code there. The Malbolge language has eluded many attempts to use it for some years. As I’ve been doing documentation on existing programming languages attempting to make a complete list of them I stumbled across terrible programming languages, which were clearly not made for actual use and implementation due to their insane difficulty.


Look up the real peogramming version here.

This will complete the simplified version of the cat program. I think that a bottles-of-beer version would not be too difficult to write for the author to demonstrate this point without a shadow of doubt or a version which uses a different base; e. According to the author no other language is implemented like this, because it would be idiotic. Memory filled this way will repeat every twelve addresses the individual ternary digits will repeat every three or four addresses, so a group of ternary digits is guaranteed to repeat every twelve.

Malbolge is a programming language invented by Ben Olmstead innamed after the eighth circle of hell in Dante’s Inferno. The language is named after Malebolge [sic], the eighth level of hell in Dante’s Infernowhich is reserved for perpetrators of fraud.

As a side effect, this value is stored in A. Sometimes these ideas influence the entire industry. My programming method uses many “NOP” intructions, that is why the pattern will occur corresponding to the specification of Malbolge.

The actual spelling Malbolge is also used for the sixth hell in the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game.

Can you guess what it does?

The number of repetitions and new lines determines the opcode which is executed. Brainfuck is the superstar of obscure languages, reaching almost a cult following. It operates on corresponding trits of each machine word it’s a “tritwise” operation.

Alex, You could do that in many other more sane ways but it wouldn’t be that funny that way: However very few addresses allow to directly enter immutable NOPs into the code because the range of allowed values in the source code is very limited. You can almost imagine a cat using it in production!


This was influenced by how hardware such as x86 progrmming worked.

This is quite possible the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen on a computer since I first found out about Befunge and Malbolge a few years back Have a look at the Shakespeare Programming Language.

Alex, you are a very witty and keen programmer who deserves respect for trumping Mr. This article walks the way he opened, explaining many of his findings in detail and other caveats that must be taken into account not mentioned by him. In the television series Elementaryduring the episode “The Leviathan” season 1, episode 10a clue written on a coffee order is described as having been written in Malbolge. There is an entire website dedicated to JavaScript’s weirdness, but to give you an example, here are two small JS snippets that are perfectly valid you can try them out in your console:.

Student evaluations, however, tend to suggest otherwise, so this year, everything will be presented in python. Taxi is also pretty cool.

The difficulty in showing this, however, is in showing that memory words are enough to implement the FSA that simulates a universal Turing machineas practical Malbolge programs consume lots of memory. You might also be interested in Shakespeare.
