<programming, humour>

("pointed brainfuck") A variant of the Brainfuck esoteric programming language in which each instruction has an operand that is the number before it in memory. Numbers refer to memory in a bizarre way. 0 refers to cell zero, 1 refers to the cell whose number is in cell zero and so on, so the number N refers to the result of dereferencing cell zero N times. The "*" in the name is a reference to the * operator in the C language that dereferences a pointer.
