Renumbering

Renumbering is an esoteric programming language created by User:DoggyDogWhirl. It was created around the idea of re-assigning values to integers.

Overview

Instead of integer literals, Renumbering uses variables whose names are integers, and which are initialized to that integer's value. Negative integers are preceded with a _ (e.g. _1 is initialized to -1). The operations +-*/%^ are used on two variables, and re-assign the first variable to the result of the expression (compound assignment operators). = directly sets the first variable to the value of the second.

Operation Description
A = B Assignment: Sets A to the value of B.
A [+-*/%^] B Compound Assignment: Sets A to the result of the operation between the values of A and B.
I A Input: Sets A to the value inputted.
O A Output: Outputs the value of A. Floors decimals and raises an error if negative.
C A Character Output: Outputs the value of A as a character. Floors decimals and raises an error if negative.
G A Goto: Execution jumps to the command numbered the value of A (1-indexed).

Floors decimals. Does not jump if less than or equal to 0. Program ends if index is too high.
