Ook! is a programming language designed for orang-utans.

Language sources: Ook! is essentially isomorphic to the well-known esoteric language BrainF***, but has even fewer syntax elements.

A programming language should be writable and readable by orang-utans.To this end, the syntax should be simple, easy to remember, and not mention the word "monkey".Bananas are good.

Chad Fowler has written an Ook! interpreter in Ruby. Øyvind Grønnesby has written an Ook! interpreter in Python. Lawrence Pit has written an Ook! compiler in .Net, called Ook#.
