@TheDoctor you have a byte in \x70 .. \x75 range according to reference to line 993, so probably something happened to the \x05 when you copied and pasted, since the \x73 at the beginning is part of a string literal
and \x05 is what ends the string

@Mego Now that I have achieved this, I think I will ;)
 
Note that the CP437 is sort of useless: it's just a way to visualize every byte in a distinct way. (It and its variants are the only code pages I know of that achieve this...)
The bytes are what it's all about. Type them in a hex editor, I suppose
You can also put ( spooky me ) push-a read-num 2 + swap in a text file and run it through gs2c.py. Like python2 gs2c.py <that >code && python2 gs2.py code <<<'3'.
 
Perhaps there's a monospaced font where each byte (00...FF) is its hex representation?

@MitchSchwartz There was a KOTH that did sort of that - users posted the MD5 digest of their code, and were allowed to modify their code (and update the digest) up until the deadline. Then, the code was posted, and those whose MD5 digests matched were used.

A: Boo! A Halloween Code Golf Challenge

Cᴏɴᴏʀ O'BʀɪᴇɴChaîne, 23 bytes language postdates question {il1-R1+`} ~BOO!~ {<$/}

 
Interesting. I just figured out that getting undownvoted can cost you rep. :/
 
@Dennis What? How does that happen?
Oh, BTW, I would've earned Mortarboard on Tuesday, had the Monday Mini-Golf question recieved one more upvote
Oh well, +195 rep is good enough for me
 
12:58 AM
@VoteToClose Is carrots only scored by number of languages, with no byte limit on the total file?
 
I got downvoted on Oct 6 and Oct 27. I hit the rep cap later those days, so I didn't lose any rep from the downvotes.
Both downvotes got reversed on Oct 28, but I hit the rep cap that day as well, so I didn't gain any rep from the undownvotes.
Today, my rep got recalculated. The system decided none of this was fair and made the original downvotes count as -2 each.
@ETHproductions That sucks! :/
 
@Dennis Oh, that's weird. Never hit the rep cap before, so never experienced anything like this. Guess I'll have to wait until this Monday to have a shot at hitting it again. ;)
Or I could spend all day tomorrow posting n00b answers in Pyth, golfing them down, and watching them all score 5 or more.

What does count as "built-in". Is a function that is available in a standard install still a built-in?
function in this case is a function definition from an included source file (from the languages standard includes), not a native function provided by the compiler/interpreter.
 
1:23 AM
@mınxomaτ Yes. That's exactly a built-in, as it's built right into the language.
 
No, it isnt.
built-in i mean
Consider the following:
 
Seems like anything that comes standard with a language counts as a built-in. Though when people say "no built-ins" the probably mean "no built ins that solve this task directly". e.g. "no prime finding built-ins" for a prime related challenge.
 
Function foo() is available from a blank source file and is provided by the interpreter. Function bar() is not provided by the interpreter, but is a function that is defined in another (plain) source file b.txt (e.g.). If a new program imports b.txt to call bar(), is bar() considered a built-in if b.txt ships with the language.? (Remember: The b.txt contains the full source to this function).
 
@mınxomaτ yes
 
@mınxomaτ I would call it a built in. For one thing, which functions come in what files is a somewhat arbitrary categorizer of built-in/not built-in. But as I see it, a challenge that says "no built-ins" means you have to implement the function yourself and count it as part of your code. Libraries count as built-ins in this sense.
 
1:31 AM
OK, thanks.
 
(It's a vague area anyway since e.g. if prime finding builtins are not allowed then should factorization built-ins be allowed?)
 
@Sp3000 In the case of tiebreak, the shortest code wins. Otherwise, it's just language count.
 
Honestly, I think that the basic addition operations are built-ins ;)
 
@VoteToClose Hmm not sure how I feel about that. There's a lot trivial esolangs to fit... (including 9001 BF variants)

How can you move diagonally within a single column?
 
From column A to Column B
 
2:03 AM
An example of the path being taken would help.
 
You could say this: the border of pumpkins must be an octagon, with all slanted sides equally long, with a slope of +-1, and at least 3 characters long.
 
@El'endiaStarman That makes way more sense to me

2:15 AM
@quartata Scroll up
 
@feersum Rephrase?
 
Still don't understand how I got outgolfed with GS2
I experimented quite a bit and determined that was the shortest solution
 
If the sides are disconnected, if there is a slope more than +-1, and if the pumpkin is too small @feersum
 
There should be a spec for invalid pumpkins (or all pumpkins) too
Since there could be other inputs, like one with different characters on the inside
 
Yeah, I mentioned that. A valid pumpkin is a code block whose inner characters are composed only of (, ), (space), and |.
 
2:20 AM
I know that.
 
composed only of
 
My question is, can an invalid pumpkin have say, an A on the inside?
Or will there be no such inputs?
 
To what?
Which question is answered yes?
 
To your first remark
 
2:22 AM
Can an invalid pumpkin be any rectangular grid chosen from all the ASCII characters?
 
That seems to be contradicted by The border will always be "connected"
 
The border of pumpkins must be an octagon, with all slanted sides equally long, with a slope of +-1, and at least 3 characters long.
A rectangle 'aint an octagon
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Does The border will always be "connected" describe all possible program inputs, or just valid pumpkins?
 
2:25 AM
@feersum valid pumpkins
 
I think he means just valid pumpkins
ninja'd
That looks a really interesting challenge, hmm
 
Then it would be better to say something like "The border must be connected."
Maybe you don't need that statement at all since it's required to be an octagon now.
 
Hey guys. I'm back.

@feersum There will be no extraneous characters
 
Goodbye again.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Can you state that more precisely?
A minute ago you said that any ASCII grid might be given as input.

Anonymous
@Calvin'sHobbies PPCG, not PPGC
 
@Dennis That's true... I should add a total input length restriction of 10^9. I forgot to do that.
Of course these languages may require 1 terabyte of memory anyway even if the input is 5000...
I liked how @Zgarb had to optimize his program to finish the test cases in 1 hour.
 
3:09 AM
Is there a memory limit then? For some languages, I can image 10^9 being problematic on a typical desktop computer...
 
It should theoretically work if you have enough memory.
 
@Sp3000 Using 30 BF derivations to achieve something is not cool - it'd be down voted, quick.
 
@feersum Well, not really a problem if there's no time limit. (I forgot about swap space, since I don't use it.)
 
I don't see why people always just go "They won't do that, it'll be downvoted like crazy". The problem is that it doesn't stop the validity of the answer, and there's not guarantee that votes will happen as you expect...
 
Yes, stupid things are usually upvoted.

Finding documentation on trivial stuff like this is surprisingly hard. I guess a REPL is the natural way to use APL...

Which submission?
 
That's tricky. You can't exactly use ⎕OFF five times... If only the online interpreter worked with input.
Ah, nevermind. The online interpreter does work with input.
 
That counts as non-REPL, so I can just return the value, right?

Unfortunately, once you use , you still need to assign to it to generate output.
