This project has been out a LONG time (looks like it was last messed with in 2001), but I hadn’t seen it before and the specs are definitely worth a read.
Essentially, as a project, these guys built a pretty simplistic programming language that ends up looking very similar to a Shakespearian play.
Like I said, you gotta read the specs to fully appreciate it.
Here’s a small sample:
Outputting Input Reversedly. Othello, a stacky man. Lady Macbeth, who pushes him around till he pops. Act I: The one and only. Scene I: In the beginning, there was nothing. [Enter Othello and Lady Macbeth] Othello: You are nothing! Scene II: Pushing to the very end. Lady Macbeth: Open your mind! Remember yourself. Othello: You are as hard as the sum of yourself and a stone wall. Am I as horrid as a flirt-gill? Lady Macbeth: If not, let us return to scene II. Recall your imminent death! Othello: You are as small as the difference between yourself and a hair
Anyway, pretty clever, funny stuff, that is, as long as you’d find this pretty clever and funny (and if you haven’t been to http://xkcd.com, it’s worth the trip).
