Lines

From Esolang
Jump to: navigation, search

Lines is a language based on ///, but with input.

Specification

The program is interpreted exactly as in ///, with one exception. If \| is encountered, rather than doing something with |, the program gets one character from the standard input.

Examples

All of the examples for /// are valid in Lines, as long as they do not contain | anywhere.

Read a character and print it

\|

Read a character and print it twice

/~/\|/~~

(Both this and the next program freeze if the user inputs a ~.)

Read a character and print it, unless it is a q

/~/\|//q//~
