In 1985 my bud and I skipped grade 9 (that's how it's said in Canada) for a month straight, took the bus downtown to the good arcades on Yonge street to play wonder boy and shinobi. They sent the Truen't officer but we escaped through the alley.

What language has unless as a keyword?

level 3

Perl? Ruby? (I'm not 100% sure, actually, never touched those)

Also, English.

level 4
19 points · 2 months ago

It's definitely in ruby, but it's an alias for if !(condition)

level 5

Perl as well with the same meaning

In Perl at least though, there's also until which is an alias of while not, so whilen't would work better for that

Perl, though for readability sake it is not recommended to use.

Edited

level 5

I can only read this sentence as suggesting not to use Perl (for readability).

level 6

😢 I like perl. Sentence was garbage so edited for clarity

level 7

Oh there was nothing wrong with what you wrote. Just a bug with my interpreter

level 4

Also, Elixir (because its syntax is based on Ruby)

2 more replies

level 3

Perl, but it is used there as the opposit of if. The conditional code gets executed when the condition evaluates to false.

level 4

Yeah if this is Perl/a similar language the op should have used until not unless

Common Lisp and Racket have it baked in.

level 3

Perl but it doesn't mean 'while not', it means 'if not'

In Perl the keyword for 'while not' is until

level 2

-- -> ++n't

P.S. How did you put code and non code text on the same line?

level 3

If you do `this`, it becomes this.

level 4

yea but how do you do this ^

level 5
10 points · 2 months ago

Like this \`this\`

level 6

And to do that ^ you need to do \\\`this\\\`

And to do that ^ you need to do \\\\\\`this\\\\\\`

There was an "Ebonicode" that went around a while back. It got social justice'd out of existence but here's a sample that apparently finds primes.

sup 
{ 
  a be 1 bitch 
  slongas(a fearin 100) 
    b be 2 bitch 
    c be 0 bitch 
    slongas(b fearin a) 
      if (a videdby b time b sameas a) 
        propsta c bitch 
      fi 
        propsta b bitch 
        nomo 
    if (c sameas 0) 
      putou a bitch 
    fi 
    propsta a bitch 
  nomo 
}
level 4

I never knew wanted to start all my methods with "sup" before.

level 4

It took me way too long to figure out slongas was "as long as"

level 4

i can read this so there must be something wrong in my brain

level 4

This is awesome - I love esoteric languages like this. Was this a real thing, eg did someone actually write a compiler or interpreter for this or was it just a joke? I can't find any search results anywhere. What do you mean it was social justice's out of existence? How is that even possible?

level 5

The only result I could find was this. Seems like it doesn't have a compiler yet.

To be fair, ifn't is a pretty good contraction for "if not". It probably works best with a southern accent and a loose sense of grammar though.
