The beginners' page has a more thorough explanation of Jelly syntax and tokenization.


Terminate a dictionary-compressed string.


Rather than being evaluated literally, the characters are converted into a base-250 integer and converted to a string using Jelly's decompression function, sss. You can convert strings to their compressed form using the online tool, which also explains the compression/decompression algorithm. For example, “3ḅaė;œ» evaluates to Hello, World! and “½ċṭ6 Ỵ“Ñ'ȯ6JƓ3» evaluates to ["caird coinheringaahing", "Coding Challenges"].
