Malayalam is the language of Kerala, the southernmost state in India. Compared to the major languages of the world, only a minority of people speaks it. But Malayalam has a rich and colorful heritage. Kerala state government is even trying to make it the language for official communications. English was used hitherto.
Typing in Malayalam was cumbersome. There was not even an unified keyboard layout. Things have vastly improved in the last couple of decades. The last ten-or-twenty years saw more improvements than in the last century taken altogether.
As it turned out, I found that the Array method forEach() accepts any argument for its callback function. Basically, what the forEach() method does is that it iterates over every item in the list.
Out of curiosity, I decided to pass an argument written in Malayalam for this.
One problem here is that the computer does not understand Malayalam. So when encountering foreign languages, what programmers do is that they convert it into their Unicode equivalent.
I typed out Malayalam and converted into its Unicode equivalent. I then used it as the argument for the callback function here.
See it for yourself. The interpreter parses it just as fine.
Owing to the complexity of this method, and the experimental nature of the project, I presume I might be the first person ever to do this.
I know nobody ain’t gonna give a s* about it.
