This is a BF interpreter and optimizing compiler written in Go.
GoBF can simply run your BF program or compile it to a binary to run later.
Obligatory Install Line
go get github.com/linux4life798/gobf
The commandline program currently supports
Give it a try!
go get github.com/linux4life798/gobf wget https://github.com/erikdubbelboer/brainfuck-jit/raw/master/mandelbrot.bf gobf compile mandelbrot.bf ./mandelbrot
Note that the
run command will simply interpret the BF program in-place,
thus the performance will be as-is. Please use the
compile to generate
an optimized program.
gobf --help for more fun options!
The generated code optimizer reduces redundant and repetitive commands, like data pointer moves or incrementing a data cell. It coalesces multiple moves or data cell changes into one operation. Due to BF's repetitive nature, this typically increases the BF program's performance dramatically. All of the interesting optimization stuff is in gobflib/il package.
Recent work has added some pattern and vectorization based optimizations, but these have not been fully calibrated yet.
To try the zero pattern optimization, invoke gobf in the following manor:
gobf -O zero compile mandelbrot.bf
