SARTRE was originally a fictional programming language invented as a joke by John Unger Zussman, published in a list of "lesser known programming languages" in 1982, named after Jean-Paul Sartre, a French existentialist philosopher. The joke was expanded by John Colagioia (sometime ca. 1998-2000) to describe a complete esoteric programming language, but no implementations are known to exist.
