Breve Tutorial de Brainfuck

Pode haver coisa mais bela que uma linguagem que nos faz feliz por fazer aparecer meia dúzia de caracteres no ecrã?

Brainfuck é uma dessas linguagens (linguagem esotérica), que, acreditem ou não, é Turing-complete.

Todo o código fonte é composto apenas por 8 caracteres (operadores), todos os outros caracteres são ignorados (cuidado para não usar esses caracteres no que estão à espera de ser comentários).


Antes de mais nada eu vou por aqui o código fonte do compilador… sim… o código fonte do compilador, leram bem… Tem apenas ~270 linhas. Podem ver no cabeçalho como o compilar.

;; For the compiler, the text segment is also the data segment. The
;; memory image of the compiler is inside the code buffer, and is
;; modified in place to become the memory image of the compiled
;; program. The area of memory that is the data segment for compiled
;; programs is not used by the compiler. The text and data segments of
;; compiled programs are really only different areas in a single
;; segment, from the system's point of view. Both the compiler and
;; compiled programs load the entire file contents into a single
;; memory segment which is both writeable and executable.
%define	TEXTORG		0x45E9B000
%define	DATAOFFSET	0x2000
;; Here begins the file image.
;; At the beginning of the text segment is the ELF header and the
;; program header table, the latter consisting of a single entry. The
;; two structures overlap for a space of eight bytes. Nearly all
;; unused fields in the structures are used to hold bits of code.
;; The beginning of the ELF header.
		db	0x7F, "ELF"		; ehdr.e_ident
;; The top(s) of the main compiling loop. The loop jumps back to
;; different positions, depending on how many bytes to copy into the
;; code buffer. After doing that, esi is initialized to point to the
;; epilog code chunk, a copy of edi (the pointer to the end of the
;; code buffer) is saved in ebp, the high bytes of eax are reset to
;; zero (via the exchange with ebx), and then the next character of
;; input is retrieved.

		dd	proghdr - $$		; ehdr.e_phoff
;; The last routine of the compiler, called when there is no more

;; text origin is popped off the stack into ecx, and subtracted from
;; edi to determine the size of the compiled program. This value is

;; The bracket routine emits code for the "[" instruction. This

;; This is where the size of the executable file is stored in the

;; this field is also used as an input buffer.)
filesize:	dd	compilersize		; phdr.p_filesz
;; The size of the program in memory. This entry creates an area of

		dd	DATAOFFSET + arraysize	; phdr.p_memsz
;; The code chunk for the "." instruction. eax is set to 4 to invoke
;; the write system call. ebx, the file handle to write to, is set to

;; the first byte of the first instruction, which is also the least
;; significant byte of the p_flags field, encodes to 0xB3. Having the
;; 2-bit set marks the memory containing the compiler, and its
;; compiled programs, as writeable.)

		mov	al, 4
		int	0x80			; phdr.p_align
;; The epilog code chunk. After restoring the initialized registers,

;; The main loop of the compiler continues here, by obtaining the next
;; character of input. This is also the code chunk for the ","
;; instruction. eax is set to 3 to invoke the read system call. ebx,
;; the file handle to read from, is set to 0 for stdin. ecx points to
;; a buffer to receive the bytes that are read, and edx equals the
;; number of bytes to read.

;; The remaining instructions, "[" and "]", have special routines for

;; The endbracket routine emits code for the "]" instruction, as well
;; as completing the code for the matching "[". The compiler first
;; emits "cmp dh, [ecx]" and the first two bytes of a "jnz near". The
;; location of the missing target in the code for the "[" instruction
;; is then retrieved from the stack, the correct target value is
;; computed and stored, and then the current instruction's jmp target
;; is computed and emitted.

;; This is the entry point, for both the compiler and its compiled
;; programs. The shared initialization code sets eax and ebx to zero,
;; ecx to the beginning of the array that is the compiled programs's
;; data area, and edx to one. (This also clears the zero flag for the
;; relay jump below.) The registers are then saved on the stack, to be
;; restored at the very end.
		xor	eax, eax
		xor	ebx, ebx
		mov	ecx, DATAORG
		inc	edx
;; At this point, the compiler and its compiled programs diverge.
;; Although every compiled program includes all the code in this file
;; above this point, only the eleven bytes directly above are actually
;; used by both. This point is where the compiler begins storing the
;; generated code, so only the compiler sees the instructions below.
;; This routine first modifies ecx to contain TEXTORG, which is stored
;; on the stack, and then offsets it to point to filesize. edi is set
;; equal to codebuf, and then the compiler enters the main loop.
		mov	ch, (TEXTORG >> 8) & 0xFF

		jmp	short relay
;; Here ends the file image.

Depois de compilado, movam o ficheiro para algum lugar da $PATH (ex: /usr/local/bin) (se quiserem instalar-lo claro…).

Também vai decerto dar jeito um Makefile para tornar a compilação dos vossos programas mais prática:

srcfile=source.bf # Change me
ofile=outbin      # Change me

all: $(ofile)

$(ofile): $(srcfile)
        bf < $< > $@
        chmod 700 $@

        rm -f $(ofile)

A linguagem

Em brainfuck o mundo é uma array unidimensional, é essa a memoria que têm (inicialmente a posicao no array é 0 e todas as celulas estão a 0). Podem navegar no array, incrementar/decrementar celulas dessa array, pedir input (apenas na forma de caracteres), escrever output, e executar loops (com uma condição imutavel).

Lista de operadores

> Desloca-se uma celula para a direita
< Desloca-se uma celula para a esquerda
+ Incrementa o valor da celula
- Decrementa o valor da celula
. Escreve o caracter correspondente a celula actual
, Escreve o caracter para a celula actual
[ Delimita o inicio de um loop
] Delimita o fim de um loop

Tudo o resto é ignorado pelo compilador, por isso podemos considerar como sendo comentários.

Os loops realizam-se enquanto o valor da celula actual (actual no inicio/fim do ciclo, essa expressao é avaliada a cada iteração) for diferente de zero.


[-] Isto coloca a celula actual a 0(ponto) Enquanto a celula actual não for zero decrementa :)

Por exemplo, para copiar (na verdade mover) um numero para outra celula pode-se fazer:

, Pede input ao user

[->+<] Decrementa a 1º celula(virgula) Move_se para a 2º(virgula) incremeta_a(virgula) e volta novamente para a 1º(ponto)
              Assim que a 1º celula estiver a 0(virgula) tudo estara' codiado(virgula) e o loop termina

> Move_se para a 2º celula
. Escreve o resultado (que deve ser igual ao input)

Um exemplo parecido que permite somar dois numeros:

,>,< Pede 2 caracteres ao user


É provavel que o caracter somado não tenha representação gráfica, um bom caracter a somar á o newline (10).

Outro programa interessante é o que lê uma scring e mostra invertida:

-- -- -- -- -- Simula uma iteracao(virgula) no loop esta celula vai passar a ter o valor zero(virgula) que vai também ser o nosso indicador de fim 
                  quando formos ler a string ao contrario
        ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ Incrementa 10 que foi o valor decrementado na iteracao anterior(virgula) com o unico proposito de fazer o loop terminar
        > Avanca para ler mais um caracter

        , Le um caracter

        -- -- -- -- --  Decremeta 10 para que se o caracter lido for o newline (que vale 10) o ciclo termine

< O ultimo caracter lido foi o newline(virgula) e a celula actual vale zero

[.<] Escreve todos os caracteres ate encontrar a celula a zero(virgula) coisa que é assegurada logo no inicio do programa

++ ++ ++ ++ ++ . Escreve uma newline (que valendo 10(virgula) como temos a certeza da 1º celula estar a 0(virgula) basta isto)

Há até quem seja suficientemente génio/louco para escrever em brainfuck um algorithmo de teste de primalidade: http://esoteric.sange.fi/brainfuck/bf-source/prog/PRIME.BF. Podem ver mais programas interesantes em http://esoteric.sange.fi/brainfuck/bf-source/prog/
