An implementation of Brainfuck on the Rubinius VM.

(If you don't know what Brainfuck is, you definitely should).

Obviously... needs Rubinius!

Installation and usage

You just gem install brainfuck (or gem 'brainfuck' in your Gemfile)!

And then:

$ brainfuck

Or if you just want to generate the compiled bytecode in my_file.bfc:

$ brainfuck -C

You can also require the gem and use inline brainfuck in your ruby scripts like this:

require 'brainfuck'

# Brainfuck needs an object binding to do its stuff.
bnd =
def bnd.get; binding; end
bnd = bnd.get

Brainfuck::CodeLoader.execute_code "+++>+++<---", bnd, nil
# => [0, 3]

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add specs for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull.
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
