# Should the programming language be Turing-Complete? [duplicate]

The question appeared on chat. For the Hello, world! problem Uryyb, jbeyq! is a solution in rot13, but rot13 is not a general purpose language. Should these languages be allowed?

In this specific case, the answer could be written as a bash script that includes the rot13 call. So it's tricky to eliminate any such answers and it'll be hard to police. I think that the community will do the appropriate job of voting these answers up/down based on how sensible they are.
• I thought about solving that task with Word field functions. Alas the only way to get a character is to use SYMBOL which, again, violates two rules :-( – Joey Feb 4 '11 at 0:04
