Execute Brain****/Forth

From Rosetta Code
Execute Brain****/Forth is an implementation of Brainf***. Other implementations of Brainf***.
Execute Brain****/Forth is part of RCBF. You may find other members of RCBF at Category:RCBF.

A Brainf*** compiler written by Ian Osgood in Forth.


Load the code your preferred Forth environment. The code will define the words :bf and :bf-file,

Compiling Brainf*** code[edit]

Let's say you have this sequence that prints a capital A:


You can compile it by using the :bf word:

:bf printA " ++++++[>+++++++++++<-]>-."

Your Brainf*** code is now compiled in your Forth environment as the word printA. If you want to use a different name, replace printA with your preferred name.

Larger BF programs may be loaded from a file instead of parsed from the interpreter:

:bf-file bottles bottles.bf

Running the compiled Brainf*** code[edit]

Assuming you used the word printA from the above example, you can execute your code by running the word:
