Integer BASIC[edit]

IMPORTANT NOTE: Integer BASIC was written (and hand-assembled by Woz himself) for the Apple 1 and original Apple 2. The Apple 1 has NO support for lower-case letters, and it was an expensive (and later) option on the Apple 2. The UPPER-CASE output of this example accurately represents the only reasonable solution for those target devices, and therefore cannot be "fixed" for mixed case, only deleted.

With sound[edit]

Compiler: Roslyn Visual Basic (language version >= 15.3)

Platform: Windows, versions other than 64-bit Vista and XP, and either with a 8254 chip or sound card installed.

Plays tones synchronized with output syllable-by-syllable. Uses word forms of numbers, but can be made to display the numbers (while still playing the appropriate number of notes as per the word form).

Uses the Windows beep function, which on modern PCs should just use the speakers. Volume depends on system volume.

Parses command-line arguments (no validation) (syntax: <name>:<value>, space-separated and optionally enclosed in quotes):

  • bpm (default 120): beats-per-minute. Beep seems to lag when called frequently, resulting in desynchronized sound and dropped notes
  • oct (default 3): (MIDI) octave to play notes in.
  • words (default true): Whether to display bottle count as words; set to false to get task-compliant output

Could use some tidying-up of magic numbers.

Options and imports statements (all parts must be in one file):

Option Explicit On
Option Infer On
Option Strict On

Imports System.Globalization
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices
Imports System.Threading

                    ' Split arguments with colons into key(part before colon) / value(part after colon) pairs.
                    _ArgDict.Add(item.Substring(0, colonPos), item.Substring(colonPos + 1, item.Length - colonPos - 1))

VBA[edit]

This version uses tail recursion and inline if-statements, plus a Static variable to count the number of bottles emptied.

Public Function countbottles(n As Integer, liquid As String) As String
  countbottles = IIf(n > 1, Format$(n), IIf(n = 0, "no more", "one")) & " bottle" & IIf(n = 1, "", "s") & " of " & liquid
End Function

Public Sub drink(fullbottles As Integer, Optional liquid As String = "beer")
Static emptybottles As Integer
 
  Debug.Print countbottles(fullbottles, liquid) & " on the wall"
  Debug.Print countbottles(fullbottles, liquid)

  If fullbottles > 0 Then
    Debug.Print "take " & IIf(fullbottles > 1, "one", "it") & " down, pass it around"
    Debug.Print countbottles(fullbottles - 1, liquid) & " on the wall"
    Debug.Print
    emptybottles = emptybottles + 1
    drink fullbottles - 1, liquid
  Else
    Debug.Print "go to the store and buy some more"
    Debug.Print countbottles(emptybottles, liquid) & " on the wall"
  End If
 
End Sub

Usage: type "drink 99" in the Immediate window of the VBA editor. If you're not a beer drinker, you can specify your own favourite drink as the second argument; for example:

drink 3, "Johnnie Walker"

3 bottles of Johnnie Walker on the wall
3 bottles of Johnnie Walker
take one down, pass it around
2 bottles of Johnnie Walker on the wall

2 bottles of Johnnie Walker on the wall
2 bottles of Johnnie Walker
take one down, pass it around
one bottle of Johnnie Walker on the wall

one bottle of Johnnie Walker on the wall
one bottle of Johnnie Walker
take it down, pass it around
no more bottles of Johnnie Walker on the wall

no more bottles of Johnnie Walker on the wall
no more bottles of Johnnie Walker
go to the store and buy some more
