Bitflipper is a basic esoteric programming language created on March 23, 2022 by User:gapples2 where you flip bits. This only has 5 instructions which makes programming in this hard and long.

Instructions

Instruction Effect
FLIP X Flip bit X.
SKIP X Skip the next line if bit X is 1.
JUMP X Jump to line X.
OTPT X Output an ASCII character where the byte starts at X.
INPT X Set the byte starting at X to the ASCII value of an input character.
# Comments out the rest of the line.

Negative values of X enter the source code, making it possible to edit the code while it's running.

Interpreters

An interpreter (here) has been written in javascript by User:dtp09, with the exceptions that you cannot modify the source code, because there was not enough info given here for me to know how to interpret it properly, and the other exception being that jumping to -1 will end execution for convenience. The interpreter is hosted. It is best to write the program somewhere that can number the lines, then paste to the website.

An interpreter is also being created in C++ by User:gapples2.
