## Description

I once took a nap on my keyboard. I dreamed of a brand new language, but I could not decipher it nor get its meaning. Can you help me? Hint: Replace the spaces with either ‘{‘ or ‘}’ in the solution.

## Resolution

We found that it was the TapeBagel esoteric language.

Helped with the commands and operators, we managed to follow the execution process:

## ; resets all of the integers to zero //int0, int1, int2 = 0 %% ; resets the integer index to zero //index = int0 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int0 = 1 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int0 = 2 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int0 = 3 %# ; adds one to the integer index //index = int1 *&* ; int0 * int0 //int1 = 3 * 3 = 9 @** ; outputs int1 as a character (1 = A, 2 = B, ... 26 = Z) //output 9 = I %# ; adds one to the integer index //index = int2 **&* ; int1 * int0 //int2 = 9 * 3 = 27 ***-* ; int2 - int0 //int2 = 27 - 3 = 24 ***-* ; int2 - int0 //int2 = 24 - 3 = 21 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int2 = 22 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int2 = 23 @*** ; ouputs int2 //output 23 = W *-* ; int0 - int0 //int2 = 3 - 3 = 0 @*** ; outputs int2 //output 0 = NULL = { @** ; outputs int1 //output 9 = I *+** ; int0 + int1 //int2 = 3 + 9 = 12 @*** ; outputs int2 //output 12 = L ***+* ; int2 + int0 //int2 = 12 + 3 = 15 @*** ; outputs int2 //output 15 = O **+** ; int1 + int1 //int2 = 9 + 9 = 18 ***+* ; int2 + int0 //int2 = 18 + 3 = 21 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int2 = 22 @*** ; outputs int2 //output 22 = V #% ; sets all of the integers to one //int0, int1, int2 = 1 %% ; resets the integer index to zero //index = int0 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int0 = 2 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int0 = 3 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int0 = 4 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int0 = 5 @* ; outputs int0 //output 5 = E %# ; adds one to the integer index //index = int1 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int1 = 2 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int1 = 3 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int1 = 4 %% ; resets the integer index to zero //index = int0 *&** ; int0 * int1 //int0 = 5 * 4 = 20 @* ; outputs int0 //output 20 = T @*** ; outputs int2 //output 1 = A *-** ; int0 - int1 //int0 = 20 - 4 = 16 @* ; outputs int0 //output 16 = P %# ; adds one to the integer index //index = int1 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to //int1 = 5 @** ; outputs int1 //output 5 = E *-** ; int0 - int1 *-** ; int0 - int1 **-*** ; int1 - int2 **-*** ; int1 - int2 **-*** ; int1 - int2 @** ; outputs int1 //output 2 = B @*** ; outputs int2 //output 1 = A #% ; sets all of the integers to one %% ; resets the integer index to zero %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to %# ; adds one to the integer index *+** ; int0 + int1 %++ ; adds one to the integer that the integer index is pointing to @** ; outputs int1 //output 7 = G @* ; outputs int0 //output 5 = E %# ; adds one to the integer index *+** ; int0 + int1 @*** ; outputs int2 //output 12 = L ## ; resets all of the integers to zero %% ; resets the integer index to zero @*** ; outputs int2 //output NULL = }
