This is still a work in progress. It may be changed in the future.

The Inevitable (TI) is a joke programming language/puzzle engineered by User:Hppavilion1 in January of 2016. It is reflective of a depressing outlook on the world (that the author does not share with the language) and the inevitable march to the grave. When a TI program terminates, which they always do, it is said to have "died" to make the user feel bad.

Syntax

Like almost every esolang ever, which is probably because it makes things easier to lex and parse, TI is reliant on a series of single-character instructions. The program works on a WHILE loop iterating through the instructions and occasionally jumping around (though never enough to escape the end) and executing code based on those instructions.
