Furthermore, I recommend that the official #esoteric character set of 12 different characters for transmitting messages redundantly through a 7-bit serial line shall be: +,07HOSTafz}. afz stands for Another Foolish ...what?

Commands

An afz program executes backwards. Items in a lookup table do not have to be even.

A string-pushing command starts when a character is alphabetic, and ends when the character is not the same case as that character or is non-alphabetic.

The stack is right-ended; that is, you push items from the right to the left, and you pop items from left to right.

Input will prepopulate the stack.

Command Response
