brainfuck Build Status

Brainfuck interpreter written in C.

Usage

brainfuck [-veh] file...
-e --eval	run code directly
-v --version	show version information
-h --help	show a help message.

The interactive console can be accessed by passing no arguments.

We also provide a C api:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <brainfuck.h>
    
int main() {
	BrainfuckState *state = brainfuck_state();
	BrainfuckExecutionContext *context = brainfuck_context(BRAINFUCK_TAPE_SIZE);
	BrainfuckInstruction *instruction = brainfuck_parse_string(",+++++.");
 	brainfuck_add(state, instruction);
 	brainfuck_execute(state->root, context);
	brainfuck_destroy_context(context);
 	brainfuck_destroy_state(state);
	return EXIT_SUCCESS;
}

Examples

The examples/ directory contains a large amount of brainfuck example programs. We have tried to attribute the original authors of these programs where possible.

Getting the source

Download the source code by running the following code in your command prompt:

$ git clone https://github.com/fabianishere/brainfuck.git

or simply grab a copy of the source code as a Zip file.

Building

Create the build directory.

$ mkdir build
$ cd build

Brainfuck requires CMake and a C compiler (e.g. Clang or GCC) in order to run. It also depends on libedit, which is available in the main repositories of most Linux distributions (e.g. as libedit-dev on Debian/Ubuntu) and comes with the macOS XCode command line tools. Then, simply create the Makefiles:

$ cmake ..

and finally, build it using the building system you chose (e.g. Make):

$ make

After the build has been finished, you may install the binaries to your local system (see CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX for information about the install prefix):

$ make install

Alternatively, you may run the interpreter directly without installation, for instance:

$ ./brainfuck ../examples/hello.bf
