Spare Change is an esolang inspired by the Money Pieces, by Math Learning Center app on the App Store.

The Commands

This esolang has four registers: the Left Hand (≤), the Right Hand (≥), the Pocket (¢), and the Bank (\$). Each one can be modified by using any of the commands below:

• n>r - Move n dollars into the register, adding onto what is already there.
• r>n - Take n dollars from the register.
• r1>r2 - Move the money in register 1 into register 2, adding onto what is already there.
• r1=r2 - Swap the contents of register 1 with register 2.
• r=n - Set the register to n.
• r1+r2>r3 - Add register 1 and 2 together, and store the result into register 3.
• r1-r2>r3 - Subtract register 2 from register 1, and store the result into register 3.
• □>r - Take 1 ASCII character of user input and put it into the register as a number.
• r>□ - Print the register's number as an ASCII character.
• r1(<=>/)r2>n - Jump to the nth instruction if register 1 is less than (<), equal to (=), greater than (>), or not equal to (/) register 2
• r(<=>/)m>n - Jump to the nth instruction if the register is less than (<), equal to (=), greater than (>), or not equal to (/) m
• >>n - Jump to the nth instruction
• //“string” - Comment
