Should this category be renamed to Multi-dimensional programming languages? This would make it better include languages like Funge-98. --ZeroOne 20:32, 4 Jun 2005 (GMT)

No, this should be a subcategory of Multi-dimensional programming langugages. --Graue 20:37, 4 Jun 2005 (GMT)

If the memory but not the code is two-dimensional, does the language fall in this category? (I'm thinking of DigFill.) —Maharba 22:29, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but I don't think so; Category:Cell-based might fit, though. —ehird 22:33, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I see DigFill is already in Category:Cell-based. —ehird 22:35, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

COMPLEX (which I really ought to document on-wiki but that's besides the point) is written sequentially with line numbers, but those line numbers correspond to points on the complex plane, such as 3+2i, and the direction of execution through the plane may be altered. Does COMPLEX belong here? Taneb (talk) 17:20, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

I vote for "yes", since it's just a question of encoding. A "verbose Befunge" (with a syntax formed of lines of the form "x, y, command mnemonic") would be just as two-dimensional as regular Befunge. Similar languages already in the category include at least 2DP. --fizzie (talk) 17:29, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
(2DP wasn't actually like that, but I hope the point still stands.) --fizzie (talk) 17:31, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
