Working with Ruby
Hi, I am Jan. This is my old Ruby blog. I still post about Ruby, but I now do it on You should also install Irbtools to improve your IRB.

A* in Brainfuck! by Thammi

Yeah! I am one of the two winners of the programming competition I talked about at Playing with Dijkstra.

Furthermore, Thammi, a friend of mine, is the winner of the category “crazy” with a brainfuck implementation!

..find that path!

Yes, you did read right! Some people enjoy coding in brainfuck :). Here comes the Pathfinder!

There is also a version with German comments available.

I had been really impressed when I saw this.

Great work. Congratulations ;).

..cannot stop golfing

Unfortunately the pathfinder is not compatible with my codegolf-optimized brainfuck interpreters :/. But talking of those – I have upgraded my Brainfuck golf article. Check it out, if you are interested in code golfing.
