ASCII art- (pronounced ASCII art minus) is an ASCII art derivative that uses the commands in ASCII art but replaces them with the single character the commands look like the most.

ASCII art uses, as does ASCII art-, a one dimensional tape memory system that stores integers. There is a pointer which can be manipulated and which can, in turn, manipulate the cells in the tape.
