Well, since I'm in a Sci-Fi mood, I want to make program dreams. The language would be called dream-code.

Code: Select all

dreamType = random()

switch(dreamType):
      case 1: dream("Fly")
      case 2: dream("Nightmare")
      case default: dream("Nothing")

def Fly:
     -- Highly confusing code here -- 
My library:
LovelyMoon

Check out my current project:
Raycaster

Oh hey, I have a website now!

Dreams?
You program dreams, upload them to your home Dream-o-matic and fall asleep. And violà - personalized dreams.

That's not a programming language, it's just an application of one...

Also, for those of you who know about http://99-bottles-of-beer.net/, which is your favorite terrible programming language?
(And for those of you who don't know it; go there, and look around and especially check out all the hilarious esoteric languages)

My favorite terrible programming remains Befunge, the world's only 2 dimensional programming language.

Befunge

Code: Select all

And yes, you can run that. And yes, it can read code left to right, right to left, top to bottom and bottom to top, all in the same program.

Brainfuck is my favorite esoteric language due to its simplicity. I still can't write any complicated programs in it.

Me it's definitely Whitespace, or Malbolge. Here's hello world in Malbolge:

Code: Select all

(=<`:9876Z4321UT.-Q+*)M'&%$H"!~}|Bzy?=|{z]KwZY44Eq0/{mlk**
 hKs_dG5[m_BA{?-Y;;Vb'rR5431M}/.zHGwEDCBA@98\6543W10/.R,+O<
and here's hello world in Whitespace: (T indicates tab, S indicates space and L indicates newline, for easier reading. The language itself doesn't have these characters, just whitespace)

Code: Select all

S S S T	S S T	S S S L
T	L
S S S S S T	T	S S T	S T	L
T	L
S S S S S T	T	S T	T	S S L

fun fact: all other characters in whitespace are ignored.

EDIT: now im determined to learn Befunge or Malbolge.

EDIT EDIT: Wow, Chef looks like a really cool programming language. It's made to look like a Cooking Recipe. Here's hello world:

Code: Select all

Hello World Cake with Chocolate sauce.
 
 This prints hello world, while being tastier than Hello World Souffle. The main
 chef makes a " world!" cake, which he puts in the baking dish. When he gets the
 sous chef to make the "Hello" chocolate sauce, it gets put into the baking dish
 and then the whole thing is printed when he refrigerates the sauce. When
 actually cooking, I'm interpreting the chocolate sauce baking dish to be
 separate from the cake one and Liquify to mean either melt or blend depending on
 context.
 
 Ingredients.
 33 g chocolate chips
 100 g butter
 54 ml double cream
 2 pinches baking powder
 114 g sugar
 111 ml beaten eggs
 119 g flour
 32 g cocoa powder
 0 g cake mixture
 
 Cooking time: 25 minutes.
 
 Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
 
 Method.
 Put chocolate chips into the mixing bowl.
 Put butter into the mixing bowl.
 Put sugar into the mixing bowl.
 Put beaten eggs into the mixing bowl.
 Put flour into the mixing bowl.
 Put baking powder into the mixing bowl.
 Put cocoa  powder into the mixing bowl.
 Stir the mixing bowl for 1 minute.
 Combine double cream into the mixing bowl.
 Stir the mixing bowl for 4 minutes.
 Liquify the contents of the mixing bowl.
 Pour contents of the mixing bowl into the baking dish.
 bake the cake mixture.
 Wait until baked.
 Serve with chocolate sauce.
 
 chocolate sauce.
 
 Ingredients.
 111 g sugar
 108 ml hot water
 108 ml heated double cream
 101 g dark chocolate
 72 g milk chocolate
 
 Method.
 Clean the mixing bowl.
 Put sugar into the mixing bowl.
 Put hot water into the mixing bowl.
 Put heated double cream into the mixing bowl.
 dissolve the sugar.
 agitate the sugar until dissolved.
 Liquify the dark chocolate.
 Put dark chocolate into the mixing bowl.
 Liquify the milk chocolate.
 Put milk chocolate into the mixing bowl.
 Liquify contents of the mixing bowl.
 Pour contents of the mixing bowl into the baking dish.
 Refrigerate for 1 hour.

There are lots of 2D languages as there are lots of esolangs

I'm writing my own where functions are tables with do blocks, and there are no keywords (if, for, while, function, etc.) so basically it is all written with signs :awesome: of course variables can use names
It is in the design phase yet
for i, person in ipairs(everybody) do
[tab]if not person.obey then person:setObey(true) end
end

I love Lua's simplicity, so I wouldn't really change anything about it. The only thing I truly want is assignment operators. This is annoying:

Code: Select all

self.longVariable = self.longVariable + 1
This is less annoying:

Code: Select all

self.longVariable += 1
