Shuffling in Whitespace
Until now, programmers interested in using randomized algorithms in Whitespace have been required to supply some random stuff as input to their program. To solve this, I propose adding a new instruction to the Whitespace language that will shuffle the stack. This feature can then be used to implement various randomized algorithms, including a random number generator.
Command Reference and Sample Program
As a stack operation, this instruction is prefixed by the [Space] IMP. The command code is selected to allow for future expansion of Whitespace's stack operations and in homage to a musical group that my wife assures me is not disco.
Command Parameters Meaning [Tab][Tab][Space] Randomly permute the order of all values on the stack.
There is a sample program which prints out the digits 0-9 in a random order:
