How to Save the Princess in 8 Programming Languages

Post by Disembodied »

I hope some of our more tech-savvy members will enjoy this at a deeper level than I do (although I think it's pretty funny, mostly I'm just laughing at the pictures).

You need to rescue the princess with code - but sometimes your code doesn't work and the princess is a dragon and you're a fish.

Yup, same here. LISP one was the best.

:-D Had to laugh about LISP... Had to code OO in Scheme though.

Pascal was nice. But I always loved digging into 6502 and m68k assembler code. :-)

ah yes the joys of 6502 and z80 machine code programming... did a bit back in the mid 80's. did some x86 machine code programming too at college. started to write a patch editor for a Yamaha DX7 synth.... almost got it working too...

You have Forth:

You spend a week discussing with yourself the most efficient way to save the princess...
... Once there, the princess runs away because she thinks you came to kill her.
