In this question each answer will get a "toolbox" that can be used to construct a program/function. The toolbox will consist of two things:

  • a list of programming languages

  • a list of valid characters

You must write a valid program/function in one of the languages provided using only the characters in the toolbox. Your program/function should output the number of answers already present on this question.

Once you have written and posted an answer the language and characters you have used will be removed from the toolbox and 1 new language and 12 new characters will be randomly added to be used as the toolbox for the next answer.

Rules

  • Each answer will:

    • Output the number of valid answers coming before it
    • Contain a subset of the characters provided in the toolbox for that answer. (repeats are allowed)
    • Be in one of the languages from the provided toolbox
  • The next toolbox will determined by this python program. To generate the next toolbox put in the remaining languages and characters along with the post id of the last answer.

  • The language list here is all the languages available on try it online at the time of this post. The characters have char codes 0-127.

  • You may write either a full program or a function as your answer. Since REPLs are different languages they will not be allowed. (use the TIO version of every language)

  • If a language uses a special encoding the characters should be interpreted as bytes (decoded from ASCII and padded with a zero).

  • The starting toolbox will be randomized from this questions post id (126063), there will be 7 languages to start and I will add the characters echoprint0 and ascii 0-31 for free to get people started.

  • You may not answer twice in a row

Scoring

Each person will have a score equal to the number valid answers they have provided. There will not necessarily be an end and I will not be accepting any answers.

Sporting

This is a competition, but I encourage you to put fun above winning while still staying competitive (if I could make the winning criteria "fun had" I would). Some things that are not fun:

  • Intentionally using characters you don't need to stunt future answers.
  • Attempting to game the post id system to make future tool boxes harder to use.
  • Attempting to game the post id system to make future tool boxes easier to use.

I can't prevent any one from doing these things, but I will be downvoting any answers I suspect are doing this.

On a more positive note, here are some things that are good sporting and encouraged:

  • Coordinating with other users in chat.
  • Saving characters for harder or more restrictive languages

    \$\begingroup\$ Well...an interesting setup that got nipped in the bud early due to too many missing characters for languages that are defined by a very small set of characters. Logicode got hosed by the lack of a 1 and ! in its toolbox. I managed to produce the string "0110" using ?,0 and + although I couldn't quite figure out what the ? actually did (and it was not in the language specification). But + was missing from the toolbox as well, along with = which would have allowed for variable assignment. Aaanndd...no o for output. \$\endgroup\$ – Draco18s no longer trusts SE Jun 13 '17 at 17:34

    \$\begingroup\$ @Draco18s I found an SML answer, so maybe now there are enough chars available for a logicode answer. \$\endgroup\$ – Laikoni Jun 14 '17 at 10:46

48. Racket, cake eating peril (#47)

#lang racket (print 47)

"Cake eating peril?!?", you might ask. Well, if I said peak #7 in a rectilinear triple integral r(4) instead, then you'd all be confused and pinkcartgel() #47 just doesn't make sense, so cake eating peril (#47) was a natural choice. Plus, maybe Racket eats cake in it's free time. We'll never know.

It's no fun to say the chars you used sorted alphabetically. Anagrams are better. I'd suggest you do the same :).

It pushes 25 to the stack, then when the program ends, it prints the stack.

&2+1$h&5$h
&2          Set current cell to 2
  +1        Add 1 to current cell
    $h      Print as hexadecimal (i was taken so couldn't print as decimal
              thankfully 0-10 are the same in hex as in decimal)
      &5    Set current cell to 5
