In this challenge, you'll print out the SBCS of Jelly, a popular golfing language. Its code page looks like this:

_0 _1 _2 _3 _4 _5 _6 _7 _8 _9 _A _B _C _D _E _F
0_ ¡ ¢ £ ¤ ¥ ¦ © ¬ ® µ ½ ¿ Æ Ç Ð
1_ Ñ × Ø Œ Þ ß æ ç ð ı ȷ ñ ÷ ø œ þ
2_   ! " # $ % & ' ( ) * + , - . /
3_ 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 : ; < = > ?
4_ @ A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O
5_ P Q R S T U V W X Y Z [ \ ] ^ _
6_ ` a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o
7_ p q r s t u v w x y z { | } ~
8_ ° ¹ ² ³ Ɓ
9_ Ƈ Ɗ Ƒ Ɠ Ƙ Ɲ Ƥ Ƭ Ʋ Ȥ ɓ ƈ ɗ ƒ ɠ
A_ ɦ ƙ ɱ ɲ ƥ ʠ ɼ ʂ ƭ ʋ ȥ
B_ Ȧ
C_ Ċ Ė Ġ İ Ŀ Ȯ
D_ Ż
E_ § Ä ȧ ċ ė ġ ŀ
F_ ȯ ż « »

Or, in a code block:



  1. You can substitute with \n (0x10), § with , or Ä with ṿ if you wish
  2. You may use combining diacritics if these can be normalized to the correct character
  3. You may represent characters with their Unicode code points or UTF-8/16/32 representations
  4. You may output the characters with any reasonable formatting, as long as they are in order (e.g., a 256 character string, an array of characters, a 2d array representing a table with any dimensions, a string with newlines delimiting each character, etc.)

This is , so shortest answer in bytes (per language) wins.

    \$\begingroup\$ @23TuringMachine I downvoted because I think this challenge is uninteresting. All the answers (except for the Jelly builtin) are going to involve hardcoding most of the string. There aren't enough patterns here to make for a good komogorov-complexity challenge. \$\endgroup\$

Modified Regenerate -a --sep=, 228 bytes

I thought Regenerate would be the perfect tool for this. Unfortunately, it only supports ASCII, so I made a trivial modification to allow it to use Unicode.

This is a regex that uses a bunch of character classes to match the various chars, along with combining diactritics to match all the dotted letters. This somehow beat Vyxal :) not anymore :(

The -a flag is to list all matches, listing all the possible characters within those character classes. The --sep= flag is so that the matches are separated by nothing.

Warning: This contains a ton of unprintables.

One technique this answer uses is to replace bytes preceding multiple 0x01 to 0x1F with the cumulative sums of those byte sequences. It might be even golfier to allow printable ASCII with this approach but I'm not gonna try now. The code for this no longercontains an epic emoji:

enter image description here

All the dotted letters are created with combining characters. I take advantage of how the lowercase form of the second dotted alphabet is the uppercase form minus i.

That's pretty much it! This is horribly cursed, but it was fun to make.

Builtins are boring, so here is a slightly-less-but-still-kinda-boring answer. Despite multiple attempts to shorten the code by manipulating the code points, it turns out that string literals are the way to go.

That said, we do use some actual encoding in places, and use a couple of tricks to save bytes. The main trick used is "unparseable nilads": when Jelly encounters a nilad that doesn't form one of the chaining patterns, then the current value of the chain is printed, and the nilad becomes the argument to the rest of the chain.

Outputs a newline instead of

Try it online! Link is to verbose version of code. Explanation: The most cost-effective approach seems to be to take a compressed list of Unicode ordinal differences, calculate the cumulative sum and convert to Unicode. Additionally, one of the values is 0 which indicates that the ASCII characters to ~ should be interpolated at this point instead, which saves 3 bytes. Oddly, omitting the value completely (i.e. just having an empty string in the list) actually undoes the saving.
