In every programming language I've ever heard of, program control flows left→right and then top→bottom. That is, this psudo code:

{ print "1" } { print "a" }
{ print "2" } { print "b" }
{ print "3" } { print "c" }

would print 1a2b3c

Are there any languages (even eso-langs/DSLs) that invert that order, so that the above would print 123abc?

It occurs to me that a left-to-right control flow would be a good fit for a lot of "pipeline" type data work, and I'm curious if anyone has tried it

@codesections
There's one eso language that is all about paths in an ascii grid, but I don't remember the name

@pettter @codesections I think you may be thinking of Befunge or one of its derivatives?
