Computational class up for debate

The computational class for this esoteric programming language could be, or could not be, a finite state automaton. Please discuss it here. Rdococ (talk) 12:26, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

It seems pretty obvious that Folder is TC, because Python programs (which can be contained withing Folders) are Turing Complete. In fact, if it turns out that there's a mystical Turing Supercomplete class that we can write languages for, folder will be that too (assuming that TSC languages can run on modern computers, or that we still use the primative tree structure for file storage in the future when this is invented :P) Hppavilion1 (talk) 20:09, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
It seems pretty obvious that was not intended. Rdococ (talk) 18:57, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
I doubt Turing meant to create the most powerful computational class evaaaaaaar when he invented Turing machines, he just figured that out after he thought of them. Or maybe he did. You know what? He probably did. But bottom line, just because you didn't intend it doesn't mean it isn't so. Hppavilion1 (talk) 22:43, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
You see, I don't think an esoteric programming language which is just a "folder that can contain programs" is interesting. Why would you want my language to be even more boring than my conceptualization of it is? I'm just confused, here, because it sounds like you really want this language to just be "any ol' program in a folder". Rdococ (talk) 20:29, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Name dispute

There is another programming language named Folders. I didn't know of this language, so I created the Folder programming language. Are you bothered by this, and if so, what should we do? Rdococ (talk) 19:15, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I (creator of Folders) am fine with the name. I might write something about it for my esolangs blog, feel free to reach out (email is on my user page) Rottytooth (talk) 16:27, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
Okay, and thank you. I'll visit your blog. Take it as a sign of friendship. Rdococ (talk) 07:07, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

A Folder RPG

I'm considering designing a small RPG in this. I might use an extension with additional features. Any ideas? --(this comment by Hppavilion1 at 17:39, 23 August 2015‎ UTC; please sign your comments with ~~~~)

You forgot to sign. I had to look at the edit history to see who wrote this. Anyway, answering your question, I'm rather clueless as to what additional features could be added to Folder, or a derivative. But good luck with your RPG. Edit: Oops, I forgot to sign.
