What's the most obscure programming language you know?

What's the most obscure programming language you know? (Obviously, just being able to do FizzBuzz in it doesn't count as knowing it, let's only count languages in which you've written at least one 1000+ line project.)

      Used it as a kid as school. Not obscure.

      My first computer came with MSWLogo pre-installed.
      I was too dumb to make anything cool with it but the example program blew my mind, particularly its implementation of ELIZA chatbot.

    Fifth. It was a cross between Forth and Smalltalk, written for his master's thesis by Cliff Click (later worked on Java Hotspot). The language was probably never used by more than 100 people, total, in its existence.

    Rust
    Nobody uses it to get the actual job done, because nobody would do the actual job with it except insane people.

      Tcl. It's been a while but I could still do some scripting

      I work at a big tech (tm) and there is quite a bit of Rust getting written. I think it's the preferred language for AOSP development

    Haskell probably. I don't use it anymore, but I've written projects in it.

      Oh wait, I've also written some QuakeC. That's probably even more obscure than Elisp and Haskell.

    Pic is honestly posing a pretty interesting question and I'd love to read what she came up with.
    Like, I know there's plenty to criticize about OOP, but I'm curious if heteronormativity is one of it.

    Ok, original website is down, but I found a later article. She tried finding examples of feminist code and
    >we agreed on the clear absence of executable code written through a language developed with a distinctly feminist framework.
    She doesn't really get closer to a definition of what a feminist language would look like, sadly. Instead, she gives examples of feminist programs in just regular javascript and pseudocode, which is... not the same at all. A Turing complete language can be used for any purpose, that's kinda the point. The question was to create a language with feminist features, but she doesn't even identify what language features are non-feminist, so we're no closer to describing what a feminist language might look like. Haskell could be the feminist language she's looking for, for all we know. Or what's the one that's feminizing all the cute boys? Rust?

      The only real criticism is that hardly anyone uses it correctly because it's been taught incorrectly since it became a buzzword in the '90s.

    Wrote a 500 loc console-based game in my own lang, but I think that's cheating. I've published it on my site, which gets about -1 views a day.

      Just store your views as unsigned int

      you have to advertise yourself if you want views. Open a youtube channel and do shit like the channel "tsoding", you will eventually create a community.

      and share the link to your site

        Post it. I'll play and review it.

        https://www.litechan.org/epp/
        If you wanna try the demos I highly recommend just dropping the right executable into the demo folder, opening a console of your choice there and then typing in ./eppgo script.epp
        Files within the demo folder:
        >bf.epp
        Brainfrick interpreter that runs a Hello World program by default.
        >bloat.epp
        Library with various useful tools I consider unnecessary in the standard library.
        >graph3.epp
        Graphing calculator that uses all cores of your PC to draw a graph you give to it, something like y == sin x.
        >math.epp
        The math library.
        >primes.epp
        A script that finds 1228 primes quickly, using all cores you have.
        >roulette.epp
        The game, features an actual opponent AI (take a look at it using one of the Epp editor flavors).

    In terms of languages that are actually practical to use, Forth. As for even more obscure stuff, esolangs are just toys and it's not difficult to make something convoluted and awkward to use.

    I've used BlitzMAX for a good while in the past for hobby gamedev. It's like BASIC but with Raylib built into the lang and compiler.

    Also has BlitzBasic as smaller brother and Blitz3D as larger brother iirc. For more simple or 3d games, respectively.

        NTA but raylib is a gimmick project that abstracts everything so there's no boilerplate, specifically designed for teaching gamedev

    Deluge. Stupid proprietary scripting language for pajeet software suite Zoho is was forced to work with.

    It does not have for loops. if you want to iterate you have to hardcode an array of integers and for each over it.

      I thought that Deluge is just scripted in Python?
