What's the programming language? It seems to me like a special reverse golf variant of Python, where def is replaced by define, just to make it longer. Or is there a real language with that syntax? -- 08:40, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

 Lisp/some derivatives (I'm most familiar with scheme) use define<define> as does Slate, however both have a different syntax.   Most likely, this is just pseudo-code. Baldrickk (talk) 09:59, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Definitely going to have to include a link to the actual longest language: Unary, which is literally just a certain length of 1s. No one actually writes in it: you write in another language and then it gets converted. Trlkly (talk) 10:48, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

This might be directed at a code golfing challenge currently taking place: The goal is to write a program that outputs a text, that is as closly as possible to moby dick, while no containing it, and of course beeing as small as possible. 13:04, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
