    Says petral:

    Wow, great catch!

    I had forgetten all about unlambda, and I owe you big thanks for reminding me. You are absolutely correct. You can think of this program as an interpreter for a language very similar to unlambda. In particular, the I, `, S, and K have exactly the same meaning as in unlambda.

    Now I don't have to refuse to explain the program; I can just point to the unlambda web pages. There are a bunch of variations here, but if you understand unlambda, it should be easy to understand this program. (That is something of a poisoned apple, because hardly anyone does understand unlambda.)

    Everyone should give petral a big ++ on this for being so clever.
