Effective Multithreading in Befunge

Zachary Wade

About a month ago, I submitted a paper to SIGBOVIK, CMU’s annual April Fools Day conference on Computer Science topics. I had developed a thread-safe, concurrent implementation of the Befunge esolang. While it was mostly for fun, I did design a full implementation, write a paper on it, and give a presentation.
