      As the developer of a (formerly) single-letter-named language myself, it’s tempting to believe that we’ve created something groundbreaking and fresh. But it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there’s decades-old research into the topic of this language’s forte.

      The silver lining is that it’s possible to find informative educational content if you know where to look — such as this video, which sheds some light on the internal workings of the compiler: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Paj43J0pi4s

          there’s decades-old research into the topic of this language’s forte.

          That would be a surprise to me, considering the nature of the language:

          It is a single-paradigm, multi-tenant friendly, turing-incomplete programming language that does nothing but print one of two things:

          • the letter h
          • a single quote (the Lojbanic “h”)

            Apparently you didn’t watch the video.

              Ah, got me. I actually clicked the link, but iterated through my tabs backwards and by the time I got back to it I was completely confused how I had gotten there. But I have small children so I didn’t question it too much before closing it :p
