What font do you use for Ziim code? I researched a bit and could not find a monospace font with support for all the arrow characters. —Maharba (talk) 17:15, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm using DejaVu Sans Mono on Linux, and all the arrow characters in the article display correctly. ehird (talk) 17:19, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
That doesn't seem to support the angled double arrows correctly: they get rendered, but in a different font size that messes up the spacing. According to Wikipedia, DejaVu support the appropriate code block, Supplemental Arrows-B, but it is not present in the character listing PDF for Sans Mono. —Maharba (talk) 17:51, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
I couldn’t find a monospaced font that has all the arrows, either. I actually “wrote” the Ziim functions in a little tool I wrote which lays them out in a grid, so I can use any non-monospaced font that has them. As you can see, that tool also shades things and annotates the arrows with their instruction, which actually makes the code a lot easier to read than it would be in raw Ziim code, and yet it’s still completely unreadable :) — Timwi (talk) 00:42, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

"implemented" –– and the Interpreter?

Ziim has the flag "implemented" –– so *where* is the interpreter?!? Implemented does NOT mean "it theoretically is a complete, working system that somebody might write now". 23:49, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

It is implemented in Esoteric IDE. — Timwi (talk) 09:07, 3 August 2013 (BST)
