helloworld :: String
helloworld = brainfuck $
        forM_ "hello, world!" $
                flip withChar output

Generates a page of brainfuck.. which does print out the greeting when run.

 helloworld' :: String
 helloworld' = brainfuck $ go 0 $ map Char.ord "hello, world!"
         go n [] = return ()
         go n (c:cs) = do
                 let delta = c - n
                 multi (if delta > 0 then incr else decr) (abs delta)
                 go c cs

I think this generates the shortest possible brainfuck hello world program. And I wrote it in ... 15 minutes?

oh hell, I've taken all the fun out of brainfuck, haven't I?

So yeah, I have a function that can optimize brainfuck code. For example, converts ">[-]>[-]+[<>[-],.<>]<<" to "+[[-],.]"
