RPxem is a Ruby implementation of Pxem, an esoteric programming language that enables you to create programs in 0-byte files.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'rpxem'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rpxem


Using in Ruby

Require RPxem:

require 'rpxem'

Open and execute your Pxem file:

path_to_pxem_file = '~/Hello, world!.pxe'
RPxem.open(path_to_pxem_file) #=> Hello, world!

Execute your Pxem code:

file_name = 'world!.fHello,.pxe'
file_cont = ' Pxem '
RPxem.run(file_name, file_cont) #=> Hello, Pxem world!

Using from CLI

This program also runs as a command-line Pxem interpreter called rpxem:

$ touch "Hello, world!.pxe"
$ rpxem "Hello, world!.pxe"
Hello, world!
