Baz

Baz is a joke programming language created by User:OriginalOldMan. Variables can only have 3 values in Baz: true, false, or baz.


Variables

Variables are assigned like so:

variablename = value

The following code would set the variable x equal to baz:

x = baz

Commands

There are only a few commands in baz.

Command Description Example
show <variable> Prints the value of a variable to the screen. show x prints the value of x to the screen.
get <variable> Gets input from the user and stores it in a variable.

Will only accept true, false or baz as valid input.

get x gets input from the user and stores it in x.
if <variable> Works the same way as if statements in most languages.

If the variable is equal to baz, then there is a 50% chance that the code inside of the if statement will run.

if x

show x

endif prints the value of x if x is equal to true (or sometimes baz).

if! <variable> The if! statement is the same as the if

statement, except it executes when the variable is equal to false (or sometimes baz...).

if! x

show x

endif prints the value of x if x is equal to false (or sometimes baz......).

goto <line> Jumps to a specific line in the program. show true

goto 1 prints true forever.

end Ends the program.

Error Reporting

Errors are reported like so:

YOU ARE WRONG!@<linenumber>

An error at line 1 would look like this:

YOU ARE WRONG!@1

Programs

Cat Program

get x
show x

Truth-machine

Note: Instead of 0 and 1, we use false and true.

get x
if x
show true
goto 3
endif
show false
end

Randomly print true and false

if baz
show true
goto 1
endif
show false
goto 1

Quine

YOU ARE WRONG!@1
