Astridec is a programming language created by User:PixelatedStarfish. It is designed for Starstuff, such that any sequence of characters can be converted to runnable Astridec code. Astridec is designed to be extremely simple, with 10 instructions and virtually no errors. It is very similar to bf; memory is stored as bytes on a circular, unbounded tape (similar to a deque). Bytes wrap around such that all values must be between 0 and 255 inclusive.

To clarify, the tape is initially at a size of 64 cells. Incrementing to cells 65 and beyond extends the length of the tape. Decrementing to cell -1 causes the pointer to jump to the highest cell on the tape.


Command Desc.
0 Set cell to 0
1 Add one to byte
2 Subtract one from byte
3 Increment cell pointer
4 Decrement cell pointer
5 If cell is 0, go to previous 5, or to start if there is no previous 5.
6 If cell is 0, go to next 6, or to end if there is no next 6 (halt).
7 Take input as an ASCII character
8 Print ASCII char
9 Halt
