Code and docs are attached. From the documentation:
FUNKEY is an imperative, stack-based interpreted programming language with a REPL interface, reminiscent of Forth. Instead of typing though, commands are entered by playing the appropriate musical notes, which are read via the microphone. Briefly, the interpreter is capable of handling integers, basic maths operations, nested conditional (IF) and iterator (FOR) blocks, recursive user-defined functions and variables (though the stack architecture means interesting programs can be written without variables).
Why input programs in such a strange way? As we know, keyboards are complicated things and can scare away people who are not coders. This programming language brings it to a wider audience; now anyone with a suitable instrument (piano, recorder, flute, xylophone, violin to name a few) can program a computer. This is truly a revolution in computing.

See the attached funkey.txt for installation details, language specification and some examples. is the interpreter itself. Requires Python 3, and a few libraries. Only tested on Linux.

Both files meet the length requirements:
$ wc funkey.txt

  121  1282  7419 funkey.txt

Have fun!

RE: Funkey
bplus shopping list:
 + Musical instrument, + microphone... + Linux ??? (I have conspiracy theories about people who use Linux but no worries, they are in same shape as people who use BASIC. ;D  )
0 I think Python is cross platform since I have both versions on Windows 10, so maybe - Linux is NOT necessary. Wink

Imagine coding by playing an instrument! Cool! but would any catchy melodies actually occur? A Swan Lake or an 1812 Overature (Overture for spelling fans) or Hey Jude?

Now this gives me an idea! I started something with a mouse and drawing /sounding musical notes on screen and recording sights and sounds in data file.
Just bypassed need for - microphone or musical instrument , use mouse!
Wait, probably don't need Python either...  Big Grin

RE: Funkey
While reviewing FunKey code, I encounter this line that looks very interesting:

Code Snippet: [Select]
exec(['s.push(s.pop2())','s.push(int(s.program[s.ip+1]));s.ip+=1','s.push(s.stack[-2])','print(s.pop())','s.push(s.stack[-1])','','if self.pop():\n s.control.append((-1,0,0))\nelse:\n n=1\n while s.program[s.ip]!=7 or n:\n  s.ip+=1\n  if s.program[s.ip]==6:n+=1\n  if s.program[s.ip]==7:n-=1','','step=s.pop();start=s.pop();end=s.pop()\nif start > end:\n n=1\n while s.program[s.ip]!=9 or n:\n  s.ip+=1\n  if s.program[s.ip]==8:n+=1\n  if s.program[s.ip]==9:n-=1\nelse.control.append((s.ip,step,end));s.cts.append(start)','s.cts[-1]+=s.control[-1][1]\nif s.cts[-1]<=s.control[-1][2].ip=s.control[-1][0]\nelse.cts.pop();s.control.pop()','s.push(s.cts[-1])','','s.push(s.pop()*s.pop())','s.push(s.pop2()//s.pop())','name = s.program[s.ip+1];s.ip+=2;function=[]\nwhile s.program[s.ip]!=5:\n function.append(s.program[s.ip]);s.ip+=1\ns.functions[name]=function','call=Machine(stack=s.stack,variables=s.variables,functions=s.functions);call.feed(s.functions[s.program[s.ip+1]]);;s.ip+=1','s.push(s.pop()+s.pop())','s.push(s.pop2()-s.pop())','s.variables[s.program[s.ip+1]]=s.pop();s.ip+=1','s.push(s.variables[s.program[s.ip+1]]);s.ip+=1','','s.push(int(s.pop2()<s.pop()))','s.push(int(s.pop2()>s.pop()))','s.push(int(self.pop()==self.pop()))','s.push(s.pop2()%s.pop())','s.push(s.cts[-2])'][s.program[s.ip]])

Is anyone around who can describe Python's EXEC (or is this coming from an import item)?

RE: Funkey
This is largely a trick to keep the program under 100 lines.

As you can see, we have a large list of strings, and then take the string at position s.program[s.ip]. s.ip is an instruction pointer and s.program is all the commands to br executed, so s.program[s.ip] is the current command (as a number). Each string in the list corresponds to a command. exec() takes a string containing Python code and executes it as if it were written in the file; \n is used to embed newlines.

It also looks nice, because all the logic of the virtual machine that executes the code is bundled up into one list.
