PIPES

PIPES is a image-based 2D programming "language". It follows "pipes" and executes operations when reaching pipes with specific colors. Most operations work on the stack, but you can save and load from memory.

Features

  • Drawing programs
  • No more writing programs
  • Input characters
  • Output numbers and characters
  • Basic arithmetic operations
  • Comparisons
  • Saving and loading to/from memory

Planned

  • Better input processing
  • Custom palettes
  • Better debugging
  • Better editing (custom IDE?)

Install PIPES:

$ npm install pipes-lang -g

You can use this palette file for Paint.NET.

Usage

  Usage: pipes [options]
 
  Options:
 
    -V, --version       output the version number
    -d, --debug         Debug mode
    -s, --strict        Strict mode
    -i, --input [args]  Input arguments
    -p, --stepwise      NOT YET IMPLEMENTED! Stepwise execution
    -h, --help          output usage information

Pipes

The program will always try to go straight, then right and then left.

Pipes aren't allowed to touch the image borders!

This is the standard palette, in the future I want to make it easy to use custom palettes.

Meta Pipes

Color Code Name Meaning
White 0,0,0 background is ignored
Black 255,255,255 default pipe guides program
Grey 127,127,127 blockade low priority(only enters if there's no other way)
Green 0,255,0 entry program starts here
Red 255,0,0 exit program stops here

Stack Operation Pipes

Color Code Name Meaning
Blue 0,0,255 push the only pipe that needs an parameter afterwards, pushes the following pixel color number to the stack
Yellow 255,255,0 remove removes the top element from the stack
Gray 127,127,127 blockade low priority(only enters if there's no other way)
Spring Green 0,255,144 stack to memory saves the second element on the stack to the adress provided by the first element, the first element is removed
Cyan 0,225,255 memory to stack pushes the element at the adress provided by the top element on the stack and removes the adress element
Malibu 127,127,255 duplicate duplicates the top element on the stack
Electric Violet 178,0,255 swap swaps the top two elements

Arithmetic Pipes

Color Code Name Meaning
Japanese Laurel 37,127,0 add removes E1, E2 and pushes E1+E2
Pigment Indigo 87,0,124 subtract removes E1, E2 and pushes E2-E1
Cedar Wood Finish 124,24,0 multiply removes E1, E2 and pushes E1*E2
Orient 37,127,0 divide removes E1, E2 and pushes E2/E1

Control Flow Pipes

Color Code Name Meaning
Pumpkin Skin 168,97,11 compare compares E2 to E1, and changes direction depending on the result. equal: straight, greater: right, less: left
Blue Chalk 248,214,255 teleport absolute program jumps to position x = E2 y = E1
Baja White 255,251,214 teleport relative program jumps on position x = x+E2 y = y+E1

I/O Pipes

Color Code Name Meaning
School Bus Yellow 255,216,0 input no effect (yet)
Blaze Orange 255,106 output removes the top element from the stack and prints it
Chardonnay 255,206,127 char output removes the top element from the stack and prints the char with the char code provided

All the color names are only the names of the nearest named colors.

Examples

(Please tell me how I can set images to display pixelated, this is awful.)

Basic I/O

When you input "r" it will output "right", when you input "l" it will output "left, otherwise it will return "-1".
