What is the COOLEST language?
« on: December 13, 2012, 08:16:55 AM »
There are a truckload of fun languages out there, but what is the coolest one?

Don't say C# or C++ or Fortran or Delphi, because they're just not cool in the least. Think "boo" or "LOL" or "brainfuck" something FUN~! ;D

Here's one cool language:

No need to be useful or anything... Just fun. :D

As a commentary on the whole Dilbert PHB thing, I'd die in laughter if "that IT guy in the corner" that Mgt loves to kick around decides to code their enterprise mission critical app in something like LolCode. (That's my pick for the most insulting.)

Then I can see it when that coder gets a nice lucky break and moves on, and his successor stares in disbelief at 100,000 likes of Lolcat code that the entire business runs on and goes "Oh ... My ... Gawd..." and then tries to get out as fast as possible without screwing up his references list. (Having guessed what management culture led to it at all!)

 ;D

Simple.  The coolest language is the one (1) I [am able to] use.  All the rest are {junk|overblown|(your descriptive here)}  :P.

Slang, because anything can mean anything in slang if you use the right inflection. I'd like to be able to program in slang, because then I could just paste shit out of the phone book and compile it.


If you were half as drunk as I am ... You'd be laughing right now.

An old chat room quote from Martin:

</\/\artin> I'm going to make an esoteric programming language based off sexual positions only, I think it'd be fun... and the result could either be executed, or used as a guide in bed

Well, he did create this some time after that statement...but I see nothing related to sexual positions anywhere in it.  :huh:

^^ Hmmm... I couldn't find the silence programming language anywhere, but I did see something called "Choon":

http://www.stephensy...com/choon/choon.html

Quote
Choon is an esoteric programming language.

Its special features are:

Output is in the form of music - a wav file in the reference interpreter
There are no variables or alterable storage as such
It is Turing complete

Choon's output is music - you can listen to it. And Choon gets away without having any conventional variable storage by being able to access any note that has been played on its output. One feature of musical performance is that once you have played a note then that's it, it's gone, you can't change it. And it's the same in Choon. Every value is a musical note, and every time a value is encountered in a Choon program it is played immediately on the output.

Play the funky programming language called Choon white boy~! :P
