Yet Another BrainFuck Compiler
YABFC is an optimizing compiler for the brainfuck language that uses no dependencies apart from standard POSIX headers. The output format is a 64 bit ELF executable file. Be sure to visit the wiki!
make && sudo make install
Usage: yabfc [OPTION...] Files... Compiles one or multiple brainfuck files to the ELF file format, in 64 bit mode -o, --output=FILE Output to FILE -O, --optimize[=LEVEL] Set optimization to LEVEL 1,2 or 3 (default 3) -q, -s, --quiet, --silent Do not produce any output -v, --verbose[=LEVEL] Set verbosity to LEVEL 1,2 or 3 (default 2) -?, --help Give this help list --usage Give a short usage message -V, --version Print program version Mandatory or optional arguments to long options are also mandatory or optional for any corresponding short options. Report bugs to <email@example.com>.
Make sure to have
valgrind installed, then run
./integration_tests.sh. Valgrind is necessary to have a sandbox environment where 64 bit ELF's can run on any host OS.
The data pointer in the executable is representated by the assembly stack pointer, as such and new stack allocation is guaranteed to be zeroed initially. Because of this, as well as the executable being set in 64 bit mode, allows YABFC to have an extremely large value range. The size for the data pointer is the stack size and the cell size is 264.
