id certainly use that language lol (126.96.36.199)
Some unique looking variable names would be X and x in the fonts Webdings, Wingdings, Wingdings 2, and Wingdings 3.
They are respectively as follows:
X x X x X x X x --Dstrube (talk) 02:49, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
As well as esolangs, among which I would consider the likes of Whitespace and b****fuck as potential inspirations, I think I'm also minded of TempleOS and its creator as vaguer but possibly still related influences... 188.8.131.52 03:28, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
I added an explanation of what a variable is and why it's bad to have every one named X. It's pretty rudimentary though, hope someone more experienced than me will improve it. Goodbye, world! (talk) 04:39, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
- Forth basically doesn't use variable names. Commands operate on and consume the last number mentioned. A Forth program "1 2 3 . . ." prints 3, then 2, then 1. "2 3 + ." prints 5 I think??
- In Microsoft "Transact-SQL" you can script variables named starting @ and temporary objects starting #. I promise I try to resist naming objects @ or # and especially if @ or # is going to be a different object in each program... or is not. And if someone else needs to reads this (and I don't want to punish them). Not to mention "@ " for instance. Robert Carnegie [email protected] 184.108.40.206 09:21, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Psh you're all chicken. Chicken chicken chicken.
[Language where you can have return keyword in a if condition], [Language that uses unicode symbols for built_in operators], [Language, I have no words to describe], and this this X thing is winning so far... 220.127.116.11 06:35, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
- Yeah, but C++ does that shit either unintentionally or at user demand (although, to be clear, I'm not saying it's any good; C++ and Java are possibly the worst programming languages in terms of shoddy design). The X programming language is just the designer being an asshole. 18.104.22.168 07:04, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
- Those links have nothing to do with C++/Java and you can Not do those things in C++ or Java (except an if in an assignment).22.214.171.124 08:02, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Did Randall refer to this comic? https://xkcd.com/1537/ I vaguely remember another one about an esoteric language. Is there a category of programming languages on explainxkcd?
