All-New Book from O'Rly

Now that the memecats (Cute Overload, I Can Has Cheezburger, Meme Cats) have become deservedly popular, publishers are hopping on the train.


The first publisher to explain us the rules of lolingo and funniness are O'Rly in their latest book


cheezburger.gif LOLCODE - The Comprehensive Guide cheezburger.gif

Example code from the Book
HAI

CAN HAS HUGSTIME?
CAN HAS STDIO?

I HAS A LOVINGU
BTW NAO is automagically set to time right now
I HAS A NAO

IZ NAO HUGSTIME?
YARLY
VISIBLE "<3"
LOVINGU IZ K
NOWAI
VISIBLE "</3"
LOVINGU IZ NOES
KTHX

KTHXBYE


There are even concrete, hands-on uses of the language! While ROR (Ruby on Rails) made the Ruby programming language popular, Monorail does the same for the LOLingo programming language.

O'Rly are totally on top of the buzz again - order now!  :D

LOL!

I was thinking: either it's an O'Reilly book and housetier is making a word play... or it's referring to the meme.

So, YA RLY.
