While watching Elementary I saw a reference to a obscure programming language called “Malbolge“. Malbolge or Malebolge is the eighth circle of Dante’s hell. Turns out , according to the program ,Malboge is a language “designed to be as difficult to program in as possible”. I first thought that was pure fiction but it is a real programming language.
No really! It uses ternary logic rather than binary.
Unfortunately some of the programs that I had to maintain were trying to emulate Malboge. I suspect that I am not alone. Most programmers who had to maintain someone else’s code would say “This guy is/was an idiot. I need to rewrite the program from scratch”.
