Visual INTERCAL?

I’ve been a programmer for 20+ years now, so you can imagine how dumb I felt today when I first read about the INTERCAL programming language. INTERCAL was invented in 1973 by Jim Lyon and Don Woods. I learned about INTERCAL today because I just hired Jim Lyon to my group and he wrote about it in his bio that we sent around announcing his joining. Interestingly enough, I don’t remember seeing it on his resume.

Go read the INTERCAL manual here. Tons of great resources here. I hear there may be a VisualStudio add-in and a managed version of INTERCAL coming!
