Pronounced eks-too-whack, XTW is the successor of TEWNLSWAC.

There is a brainfuck implementation in XTW to proof turing-completeness: https://github.com/zserik/zxtw/blob/master/examples/bf.xtw

Syntax Differences

From To Description
c <label> <optional: arguments in parentheses> <label> ( <optional: arguments> ) call function beginning at label,

the different handling of syntax for "no arguments" is needed

to distinguish between call (<label>) and expand (<variable>).

c: <type> <expression> c <type> <expression> casting operator
<label> : <optional: a <arguments> ; /optional> <body> r; f <label> <optional: arguments> { <body> } function definition

Operator Compat Levels Description
Unary operators
i 3 (string) → 5 load a plugin
Binary operators
~ 3 → 0 check for type equality

Variables within the namespace ::l:: (or l::, if you are still in global namespace) are local to the current function invocation and will be reset to the values they hold before the function call, when the function returns.
