The inventors of INTERCAL implemented it, had a few laughs, and quickly forgot about it. However, the language manual lived on. The documentation itself was.

If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or intrecal of these sections as invariant.

The command pushes information about the argument chosen onto the stack; the following information is pushed from bottom to top:.

For more information, see External Calls. Overloading information is shared, though. The usefulness of this depends on the resolution of the timers on the computer and operating system; DOS, in particular, is really bad with timer resolution. This error should never happen, and if it does indicates a compiler bug.

The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single copy. They look like this:. This last keyword provides two reasons for the program’s rejection by the compiler: E see E will be thrown when such statements are encountered at runtime, unless the syntax has been CREATE d since to give a statement a meaning. This is the main debugging option: There are scripts included in the distribution to automate the process of installing, in various ways.

Anything the compiler can’t understand, which in a normal language would result in a compilation error, is just skipped. The change of numeric base only affects expressions, and in particular the behaviour of operators, and the range of variables. At present, external calls are only supported to and from C and Funge At present, only the cfunge Funge interpreter https: Normally changing it will have no effect, but changing it is not recommended.


Side effects during speculative execution are never recommended, because they might or might not be optimised away. There are pointers to more in the Wikipedia article Esoteric programming language. A onespot or twospot variable written by itself prints out the value of that variable. Although the three identifiers have the same meaning, using either polite or non-polite identifiers too much can cause an error; the correct proportion is approximately 3 non-polite identifiers for every polite identifier used.

These titles must be distinct from any other section titles. It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.

interdal If less than approximately one fifth of the statement identifiers used are the polite versions containing PLEASEthat causes this error at compile time.

Since this is indeed the simplest method, the programmer would be made to look foolish in front of his boss, who would of course happen to turn up, as bosses are wont to do. External C Call Infrastructure. For similar reasons, the expansion libraries syslibc. An attempt to do that causes this error at runtime.

Abandon All Sanity, Ye Who Enter Here

Princeton and Atari Syntax. Descriptions of the libraries follow it. Any other attempt to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Document is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.

To debug code, add -y see -y to the command line of ick when invoking it; that tells it to compile the debugger into the code and then execute the resulting combination. This option is not necessarily needed for the external call version of CREATE to work, but the external call version has fewer features without it.

The actual size of the value is what matters when counting its spots; so you can store nitercal output of a mingle in a onespot variable if it happens to be less than or equal tofor instance. This “forgiving” feature makes finding bugs very difficult; it also introduces a unique system for adding program comments. The three forms are identical; infercal last two are provided for aesthetic reasons it can look better and be clearer to match.


Some commands that you might use to extract it:. It is named after the first microcontroller for which code was successfully generated, and which influenced the choices of commands, the PIC16F manufactured by Microchip, and is most likely to be portable to other microcontrollers in the same range. In a non-multithreaded program whether a program is multithreaded or not is determined by a compiler option for those compilers that support itthis is an error; but it is only an error if the statement that they both point to finishes running, and both COME FROM s or NEXT FROM s try to execute as a result they might not if, for instance, one is abstained or has a double-oh-seven causing it not to run some of the time.

Befunge, no external library:.

INTERCAL – Wikipedia

Mznual is a list of the warnings stored in the warning database. After this is a suggestion to correct or reconsider the source code and to resubnit it. Retrieved from ” https: The main practical upshot of this is that binary operators right-associate; that is. Therefore, the character that is actually output is the bit-reversal of the difference between the last character output before it was bit-reversed and the number found in the array subtracting in that order, and adding if the result is negative.

This is a configure script produced by the GNU autoconf configure ; its autoconf source code is available in the file configure. The difference between a standalone line label and a line label that labels a statement is that COME FROM s will come from the label itself which is before the next statement when aiming at a standalone line label, but the end of the statement when aiming at a labeled statement.

Described by inttercal manual that circulated for years after the short life of the first implementation, reducing strong men to tears of laughter.
