“Hello World!” is too hard to program

By | 2008-02-05

10 years ago, when I saw for the first time a Java program, the classical “Hello World!”, I thought for a moment “booo, it’s counterintuitive… you need to create a class just to say Hello”. Later I used to do all the nasty work with classes.

But I never imagined something like the following:

Malbolge, invented by Ben Olmstead in 1998, is an esoteric programming language designed to be as difficult to program in as possible. The first “Hello, world!” program written in it was produced by a Lisp program using genetic algorithms.

    I guess you have already taken a look at Wikipedia’s esotheric languages section? By the way… Lisp rocks! 🙂
