Ecstatic is a Turing tarpit created by User:JWinslow23 in 2013. It is highly based off of MGIFOS and Unary, with one difference being that the instructions are different.


To make programs in Ecstatic, first make a program in BF. Then, convert it to binary according to this table (the same table that CompressedFuck uses in fact).

BF Binary
+ 000
- 001
> 010
< 011
. 100
, 101
[ 110
] 111

Note that, processing a brainfuck program from start to end, each new bit group must be appended to the least significant position of the accumulating bit sequence.

Then, stick 001 at the beginning (this is not counted as a command), or most significant position, and convert to decimal. Then, write that number of exclamation points.


Cat program (one time input)

The BF program ,. would have 108 exclamation points.

Cat program (looped)

The BF program ,[.,] would have 56,623 exclamation points.

Truth machine

The BF program ,.[.] would have 55,719 exclamation points.

Hello, World!

To print "Hello, world!" with the brainfuck program -[------->+<]>-.-[->+++++<]>++.+++++++..+++.[->+++++<]>+.------------.--[->++++<]>-.--------.+++.------.--------.-[--->+<]>. you would need 11,745,396,970,761,548,557,844,427,413,766,327,995,589,772,739,314,086,919,355,093,720,961,223,541,738,614,442,550,691,210,954,782,889,076,179,929,044 exclamation points.

...Minor setback.


The following Common Lisp functions implement the conversion from brainfuck to Ecstatic and vice versa, additionally elucidating some principles utilized in the encoding and decoding processes:
