Brainf**k is an esoteric programming language. It consists of the following eight commands:
> Increments the data pointer < Decrements the data pointer + Increments the byte at the data pointer – Decrements the byte at the data pointer . Output the byte at the data pointer ‘ Get one byte of input and store it in the byte at the data pointer [ If the byte at the data pointer is zero, jump forward to the matching ] command ] If the byte at the data pointer is nonzero, jump backward to the matching [ command
Any other symbols or characters are treated as comments.
The following Brainf**k program prints “Hello World!”:
+++++ +++++ initialize counter (cell #0) to 10 [ use loop to set the next four cells to 70/100/30/10 > +++++ ++ add 7 to cell #1 > +++++ +++++ add 10 to cell #2 > +++ add 3 to cell #3 > + add 1 to cell #4 <<<< - decrement counter (cell #0) ] > ++ . print 'H' > + . print 'e' +++++ ++ . print 'l' . print 'l' +++ . print 'o' > ++ . print ' ' << +++++ +++++ +++++ . print 'W' > . print 'o' +++ . print 'r' - - - - - - . print 'l' - - - - - - - - . print 'd' > + . print '!' > . print '\n'
Just as in a previous puzzle, write an interpreter for the Brainf**k programming language
