I came across an interesting language while doing a search for my programming language class and thought I should share! I might make this a series!
The name of this programming language is…. ArnoldC!
What is this?
ArnoldC is an esoteric programming language created by Lauri Hartikka in 2013. The language is created with Scala and the language is made entirely out of one-liners from movies featuring Arnold Schwarzenegge such as Terminator and Total Recall. Parsing is done with Parboiled and ASM is used to generate the Java bytecode.
The language’s “Hello World” program is shown below:
Details on Syntax
Variables and keywords are differentiated by capitalization, in which variables are lowercase and keywords are uppercase. Each new keyword command needs to be written in a new line. There are many methods, and brief explanations are in the wiki page of the language’s github. This language is an imperative programming language.
This is a programming language not many people know, and it is a very peculiar one!
