Once in a blue moon you meet someone who’s special, and I don’t mean special in a short bus way. No, I mean a person who strikes you as one of those few who can pick up a tuba and two weeks later actually play something, or who can build something awesome using nothing but a d20, two cotton socks, some copper string and one glass from an 80’s style pair of sunglasses.
I think R. Tyler Croy is one such special guy.
Within the last couple of days, he’s done two wonderful projects in Ada:
tinywm-ada is an…
…evening experiment to port Nick Welch’s tinywm from C to Ada. Like the original, it uses Xlib as its underlying library.
But apparently tinywm-ada wasn’t enough for dear old R. Tyler Croy, so he kicked it up a notch and released fucked-ada on the world. Yes, he has gone and made a Brainfuck interpreter in Ada. How awesome is that? Pointless? Yes. Awesome? Also yes. If you want to experience a mental meltdown, then Brainfuck just might be what the doctor ordered.
