Braincrash is a useless programming language invented by User:TehZ, based on Brainfuck. It is made to only have 2 symbols (or you could call them commands), one of which is no-op, the other execute. It is an example of a turning tarpit.
So what is it?
Basically, it has a "command pointer" (CP, not IP), which is incremented after each command (including no-op). It points to one of the eight BF commands. It is sorted in this way:
The two commands available are " " and "!". " " is a no-op, while "!" executes the command pointed to by CP. After each step, the program increments the CP by one, and "mods" it by eight.
How am I supposed to write in this language?
You aren't, but here is a trick anyway. You start out with a file containing a line filled with "+-><.," like this:
Then you add a line before that and start pressing space until you are over a BF character you want to use. When you are over one, press "!" and repeat. For example, when writing a cat program, here is the result:
!! !! ! +-><.,+-><.,(removed)
Then you remove the second line, and you are finished.
!! !! !
This short Lua script converts braincrash into brainfuck. It treats all characters that aren't "!" as spaces, however:
io.stdin:read("*line"):gsub("()!", (function(loc) io.stdout:write(("+-><.,"):sub((loc-1)%8+1,(loc-1)%8+1)) end))
This is a BRB program that converts Braincrash into Brainfuck:
This is a Python program that converts Brainfuck into Braincrash
