In accordance with our meta agreement, since one candidate received more votes than the others, we have a new featured language! Throughout January 2022, our Language of the Month will be:

Add++

What's a Language of the Month?

See the meta post for nominations. In short, during January, those who wish to participate should learn (at least the basics of) Add++, and use it to solve challenges. Participation is completely optional, but is anticipated to be fun!

Information about Add++

Add++ is a language that combines both short commands and other golfing features with general usability and practical language features. For example, I've written a programming language in Add++, and most solutions in Add++ are easy to understand for users of both practical and golfing languages. For example, it's ease at switching between functional and vanilla mode allows it to create competitive hybrid programs.

Why Add++?

  • There aren't many languages like it. In my experience on the site, I don't recall seeing any languages with a similar model to Add++
  • It is widely usable. I would describe Add++ as a practical language with one- or two-byte commands, so it's easily accessible to all golfers
  • It's somewhat used across the site. Primarily by me, but there are multiple answers by other users, and we already have a chatroom
  • Due to its wide range of builtins, it is very powerful, and so can complete most challenges competitively with other golfing languages.
    • Closer to Pyth and CJam rather than Jelly and 05AB1E however
  • It has version tracking, and each version can be run via command-line flags
  • Its docs are fairly comprehensive, thanks to Razetime

Caveats

The docs do not contain a comprehensive list of commands, and it is somewhat strict in its syntax, which can lead to a lot of errors. Furthermore, Add++ still has some bugs in the code, along with some confusing behaviours.

I'm currently writing the latest version (v6) in order to someone mitigate the biggest problems I have with Add++, but this is, at time of writing, unreleased.

Resources

Bounties

I'll be offering a +50 rep bounty to any user's second Add++ answer. The first answer can be posted during or before this month, but the second must be posted during January 2022. In addition, I'm offering +300 to any user's tenth Add++ answer posted during Add++'s LOTM.

Additionally, as the "relevant challenges" portion of LOTM doesn't really get much attention, I'm offering a +500 bounty to any user who posts an Add++ themed challenge that goes on to score 10 or more
