Καλλίστῃ (Kallisti) is a collaboratively designed, anti-Discordian language using an arbitrary number of interpreters that sequentially modify the program's source code. The original idea and brain-numbing syntax of the language was concocted by Seven Inch Bread - the semantics still being masterminded by a band of conspiracy pirates.
Kallisti started as the desire to make a larger version of dupdog.
Kallisti's design goal has the humble philosophy of OFFERING A SIMPLE OMNICONSISTENT AND POLYPOTENT CATASTROPHE THAT WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU SYNTHESIZE WITH LIFESTUFF.
The syntax of Kallisti is very difficult for humans to understand. In pseudo-BNF it is defined as:
<anything> ::= <anything>
Computations arise from modifications to these anythings.
submitting an interpreter
Send a draft to Seven Inch Bread explaining how the interpreter should work, and it will be included in the final language implementation.
The most reliable way to contact Seven Inch Bread is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (omglolbbq spambots). Any method will do though. So far, there isn't a deadline. (I hate deadlines.)
All interpreters must follow The Rules. NO exceptions.
- Obey as many rules as possible
- There is plenty nothing
- Everything is true
- Everything is false
- There is only nothing
- Obey as few rules as possible
