Brainf*** is an esoteric programming language with less than a handful of commands that are all single character commands. In spite of this, Brainf*** is in fact a turing-complete programming language. It was first conceived and created with the goal in mind of creating a programming language with the smallest necessary compiler, it still holds that record. Brainf***'s extreme minimalism stems directly from this desire for a tiny compiler.

EDIT: Yes, it's name really does contain the curse word. It has this name for a reason. Just take a look at the helloworld Brainf*** program that is variously posted in a couple of places around this forum and you'll see very clearly the reason for it's namesake. Smile

Wow, thanks for making taking my simple definition and making it complex. But you did add some bits of information, but the message still stands that it is a joke language.

No problem! Just though I'd clarify the fact that it wasn't originally envisioned or developed as a joke, but with a goal in mind. Then it became a joke! Laughing

It purpose was the joke, but because they wanted the joke to be good, and so they could smite the language that they developed brainf*ck, made it into a actual working language. Read up on it more man.
