Soup

A language interpreted through Java to make computing easier and more efficient

Basic Functions (Poly-Argumented Functions)

Soup can do these basic math functions along with other functions. Functions will continuously calculate the arguments left to right.

Legend

i{f,e}

where

Token Description
i the indentifier
f first paramater
e second paramater

Example

+{4,5,5} -> 14 %{12,2,2} -> 3 (12/2 -> 6, 6/2 -> 3)

Key: italics denotes that the function only takes one argument

Token Operation
+ Adding
_ Subtracting
* Multiply
% Divide
^ Raise to the Power Of (base,exponent)
# Logarithm (exponent,base)
P Print (e = 1 print, e = 0 for print line)
{pipe} Absolute Value of single number
& Square Root
? Rounds the number
~ Stores a variable at a specific index ~{3,0} // number 3 at index 0
/ Comments (jumps index to the end of the line; doesn't work in loops, so don't put them in loops)
Only a single space between functions is permitted (it's proper to use a period, though)

Random Number Generation (Static-argumented)

Soup can return a random integer to your specifications

Legend

R{0,4}

Returns a random float between 0 and 4

Trig Functions

Please note that trig functions return in RADIANS so be aware and plan accordingly

Key

${f,e}

where

f Case e Function
s Sine of number
c Cosine of number
t Tangent of number
arcs Arc Sine
arcc Arc Cosine
arct Arc Tangent

Area Functions

Soup can also calculate areas for you with ease

Key

A{f,e}

where

f case e function
s Finds the area of a square A{s,4,4} -> 16
tri Finds the ara of a triangle A{tri,4,4} -> 8
tra Trapezoid A{tra, 4,4}

Variable Storage

Variable storage is a critical piece to Soup. The function acts like an extension of a regular function

Token Operation Example
: Stores the last operation's output in the specific index (excluding print) +{5,5}:{0}
~ Stoes the first argument in the second argument's index ~(3,0) // this will put 3 in index 0

Variable Retrieval

Explicit Recalling

Variables can be called from within functions or just printed to the screen

If you want to just recall a variable:

V{0}

where 0 is the index that you want to pull from.

Interpolated Recalling

Variables can be recalled from within functions for interpolation and manipulation

For example:

~{3,0} // stores '3' in index 0
+{v0,3} // v0 will substitute the recalled variable at index 0 and add it with 3 to get the answer. note that the interpolated 'v' is lowercase

Getting User Input

In Soup, you can accept the user's input and store it like this:

I{What's the number?,0}

The first paramater is the string and the second paramater is the index where the input will be stored

Wildcards

User's inputs can be indentified as wildcards

Token Result
{grave} sets variable in position 100 to 1
. sets variable in position 101 to 1

Applied meaning

Example

I{type '`' for hydrogen,1}. ={v100,1};(~{-1,5}.V{5}!.P{calculating helium then...,1}.^{2,2}:{2}.*{-13.6,v2}:{2}.^{1,2}:{3}.%{v2,v3})
P{done,1}

The point? You can compare user input with things other than numbers! Menu systems! Options!

Miscellaneous Characters

These are characters that have some special functions

Token Operation Notes
. End of function it's like a semicolon, it's not necessary but it's there for making code easier to read

Looping

Soup can do for loops, while loops, and while not loops. To break a loop, use X

For Loops

For loops will increment the first argument until (about) the second argument is equal to it. Now, like a regular for loop, you can access the current index in which the loop is on. The index is stored in variable position 1000. Remember, to recall: V{1000} for interpolation (example): [{0,5}].+{v1000,4} however, you can't set this variable, only access it

Example

[{0,3}].P{hello,1} -> This will print the "hello" ~3 times

While Loop

While loops will run while argument 1 and 2 are equal. Please note that variables can be accepted as numbers.

Examples

W{1,1}.P{hello,1} -> this will print "hello" infinately times

W{v0,0}.+{v0,1}:{0} -> this loop will only run once

While Not Loop

While loops will run while argument 1 and 2 are not equal. Please note that variables can be accepted as numbers.

Examples

N{1,0}.P{hello,1} -> this will print "hello" infinately times

N{v0,1}.+{v0,1}:{0} -> this loop will only run once

If Statements (Static-Arguments)

Quite possibly the most useful function in Soup. Please read careful as this breaks some rules when it comes to syntax

The Basic If Statement

={0,0} -> will print "True" if the first and second arguments match. Prints "False" on the opposite

> If Statement

>{4,3} -> will print "True" if the first argument is greater than the second argument. Prints "False on the opposite

< If Statement

<{4,3} -> will print "True" if the first argument is less than the second argument. Prints "False on the opposite

Soup If Do

This is where things get complicated as the syntax will change. To explain: whenever an if statement function is executed, it caches the result. This means that we can manipulate it by extending the function like the store function extenstion!

Primitive Syntax

;(!) -> If the cached statement is true, execute everthing before the ! divider. If the cached statement is false, exectue everthing after the ! divider.

Extension Syntax

={3,3};(P{this is true,1}!P{this is false,1})

Treat the first and second arguments as interpolated functions. Also note that this function uses parentheses instead of curly brackets.

HTML Generator

Soup can generate a nice little webpage displaying your code outputs in the current directory called "SoupNoodle.html" Get it? Noodle soup? Soup's the name of the language? Yeah?

H{title,description}

Functions

Functions of Soup code can be stored and recalled. Note that functions must be declared before they are run.

Example

S(P{this function was stored and recalled,1}!0).
F{0}

Installation

Go to Install/ and downlod the correspoding file for your Operating System. Make sure to install the file to a global location (for example, for windows, put it in the System32 file)

Running Soup

How to make and run a Soup file

  1. Make a new file with the .soup extension
  2. Write code in that file
  3. Open up a new Windows command line window in the same directory
  4. Type soup {filename} {flags if you have them} or soup "{some soup code}"⁰ ⁰ passing soup functions this way is only designed as a quick test; some functions might not work properly this way

Flags

Flag table

Flag Function
-i prints the current index of the main loop (excludes loop functions)
"" pass soup code from within the quotations to execute some Soup code

Important Things to Remember

  • Sometimes you can't always do everything in one function, so break it up and store the results
  • Soup will accept spaces in the params and/or arguments. But Please no extra commas
  • Remember that variables can be interpolated with other functions, so use that to your advantage
  • Don't use caps unless you are using a function
  • Don't put soup function indentifiers inside of functions! Example [{0,3}].P{Hello,1} -> THIS WILL CRASH
