What is the .I File Extension?

.I File Extension Description:

The "Compiler Language with No Pronounceable Acronym", abbreviated as INTERCAL, is a programming language designed to be different with any other major programming languages such as BASIC, COBOL, ALGOL, FORTRAN, FOCAL, and many more because of its many nonsensical, paradoxical, and humorous instructions. It does not contain appendices like other languages, rather it contains another type of removal organ called "tonsil" for its references.

INTERCAL's source files have the file extension I. All the non-alphanumeric ASCII characters that these files have are given unusual names such as sparks for their single quote and rabbit ears for their double quotes. Their assignment operator is represented by a left arrow (<-) referring to the word "gets" unlike in other languages is represented by the equal sign (=).

Files with the .i file extension contain the following basic elements which also uses unusual names:

* Variables - supports two types of variables, the 16-bit represented by a spot (.) and the 32-bit integers represented by two-spots (:) along with any number between 1 and 65535.

* Constants - only 16-bit in values ranging from 0 to 65535 and are prefixed by the symbol mesh (#).

* Arrays - represented by either a tail (,) for their 16-bit values or by a hybrid (;) for their 32-bit values, which are followed by any number between 1 and 65535, suffixed by the word SUB, followed by subscripts which can be any expression involving subscripted variables, and separated by spaces.

* Operators - recognize 5 operators, namely: 2 binary and 3 unary, which are all bit-oriented. The 2 binary operators are called "interleave" represented by the change symbol (¢) and "select" represented by the squiggle symbol ("). The 3 unary operators are logical AND represented by the symbol &, logical OR represented by the symbol V, and the logical XOR acquired by overpunching the worm symbol (-) on V.

The statement in files with the .i file extension can be entered in free-format. It starts with a logical line label, which can be any integer from 1 to 65535 enclosed in wax-wane pairs (()). After the line label follows any one of the following identifiers: PLEASE, DO, OR PLEASE DO that can be used interchangeably to develop the aesthetics of INTERCAL. Following the identifiers are either, neither, or both of the qualifiers. Next can be any one of the 13 valid operations: Calculate, Next, Forget, Resume, Stash, Retrieve, Ignore, Remember, Abstain, Reinstate, Give Up, Output, and Come From.
