REBOL [ Title: "Alien Dialect" Date: 10-Mar-1999 File: %alien.r Purpose: "It came from outer space" Comment: { Rebol is not tied to any specific syntax, and can even accommodate a program written entirely in punctuation marks. This script is a good example of which punctuation can be utilized in words, as well as showing the flexibility of dialects in REBOL. Remember: many punctuation characters are reserved for use by Rebol. Challenge to the Rebol learner: Try to follow what is going on in this script. } library: [ level: 'advanced platform: none type: none domain: 'x-file tested-under: none support: none license: none see-also: none ] Version: 1.0.0 Author: "Anonymous" ] !: :do `=`~: char! __: " " `-`: :make *!*: integer! `~-: 0 &: :func ``=: word! `~.: 1 _: :load !-.: :head `~..: 2 |: :if |-.: :tail `~...: 3 ?: :loop |~.: :insert `~....: 4 |~: :print `!: :repeat `-: 5 |~|~: :prin `-`~: :copy `.: 6 `: :add _._: block! `..: 7 ||: :any &~: :not `...: 8 `|: :foreach &!`~: "^/" `....: 9 `~`~: & [&&.] [`-` _._ &&.] &|~&: `~`~ { 78 79 87 32 80 69 82 76 32 85 83 69 82 83 32 87 79 78 39 84 32 10 70 69 69 76 32 76 69 70 84 32 79 85 84 } ?||.: `-` `~- `~.... ** `~...; @% ^^/ \# $<> &~|: & [] [ ? ?||.
