### GW-BASIC

Just a basic loop counting down to one. No big deal. Note that at BOTTLES=1, it is not grammatically correct.

```10 FOR BOTTLES = 99 TO 1 STEP -1
20    PRINT BOTTLES " bottles of beer on the wall"
30    PRINT BOTTLES " bottles of beer"
40    PRINT "Take one down, pass it around"
50    PRINT BOTTLES-1 " bottles of beer on the wall"
60 NEXT BOTTLES
```

### Integer BASIC

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.

Translation of: BBC BASIC

The cases of 99 bottles and of 1 bottle are extracted from the loop. The variable `S\$` is replaced by litterals, `T\$` is divided into two variables (In Minimal BASIC strings assignable to string variables may contain up to 18 chars).

#### With sound

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
```

Helper to parse command-line arguments:

```Module ArgHelper
ReadOnly _ArgDict As New Dictionary(Of String, String)()

Delegate Function TryParse(Of T, TResult)(value As T, <Out> ByRef result As TResult) As Boolean

Sub InitializeArguments(args As String())
For Each item In args
item = item.ToUpperInvariant()

If item.Length > 0 AndAlso item(0) <> """"c Then
Dim colonPos = item.IndexOf(":"c, StringComparison.Ordinal)

If colonPos <> -1 Then
' 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))
End If
End If
Next
End Sub

Sub FromArgument(Of T)(
key As String,
<Out> ByRef var As T,
getDefault As Func(Of T),
tryParse As TryParse(Of String, T),
Optional validate As Predicate(Of T) = Nothing)

Dim value As String = Nothing
If _ArgDict.TryGetValue(key.ToUpperInvariant(), value) Then
If Not (tryParse(value, var) AndAlso (validate Is Nothing OrElse validate(var))) Then

## VBA

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
3 bottles of Johnnie Walker on the wall```

## VBScript

### Simple Method

```sub song( numBottles )
dim i
for i = numBottles to 0 step -1
if i > 0 then
wscript.echo pluralBottles(i) & " of beer on the wall"
wscript.echo pluralBottles(i) & " of beer"
if i = 1 then
wscript.echo "take it down"
else
wscript.echo "take one down"
end if
wscript.echo "and pass it round"
wscript.echo pluralBottles(i-1) & " of beer on the wall"
wscript.echo
else
wscript.echo "no more bottles of beer on the wall"
wscript.echo "no more bottles of beer"
wscript.echo "go to the store"
wscript.echo pluralBottles(numBottles) & " of beer on the wall"
wscript.echo
end if
next
end sub

function pluralBottles( n )
select case n
case 1
pluralBottles = "one bottle"
case 0
pluralBottles = "no more bottles"
case else
pluralBottles = n & " bottles"
end select
end function

song 3```
Output:
```3 bottles of beer on the wall
3 bottles of beer
take one down
and pass it round
2 bottles of beer on the wall

2 bottles of beer on the wall
2 bottles of beer
take one down
and pass it round
one bottle of beer on the wall

one bottle of beer on the wall
one bottle of beer
take it down
and pass it round
no more bottles of beer on the wall

no more bottles of beer on the wall
no more bottles of beer
go to the store
3 bottles of beer on the wall```

### Regular Expressions and Embedded Scripting

Another way of doing it, using Regular Expressions to locate executable code inside {} and replacing the code with the result of its evaluation.

```function pluralBottles( n )
select case n
case 1
pluralBottles = "one bottle"
case 0
pluralBottles = "no more bottles"
case else
pluralBottles = n & " bottles"
end select
end function

function eef( b, r1, r2 )
if b then
eef = r1
else
eef = r2
end if
end function

Function evalEmbedded(sInput, sP1)
dim oRe, oMatch, oMatches
dim sExpr, sResult
Set oRe = New RegExp
'Look for expressions as enclosed in braces
oRe.Pattern = "{(.+?)}"
sResult = sInput
do
Set oMatches = oRe.Execute(sResult)
if oMatches.count = 0 then exit do
for each oMatch in oMatches
'~ wscript.echo oMatch.Value
for j = 0 to omatch.submatches.count - 1
sExpr = omatch.submatches(j)
sResult  = Replace( sResult, "{" & sExpr & "}", eval(sExpr) )
next
next
loop
evalEmbedded = sResult
End Function

sub sing( numBottles )
dim i
for i = numBottles to 0 step -1
if i = 0 then
wscript.echo evalEmbedded("no more bottles of beer on the wall" & vbNewline & _
"no more bottles of beer" & vbNewline & _
"go to the store and buy some more" & vbNewline & _
"{pluralBottles(sP1)} of beer on the wall" & vbNewline, numBottles)
else
wscript.echo evalEmbedded("{pluralBottles(sP1)} of beer on the wall" & vbNewline & _
"{pluralBottles(sP1)} of beer" & vbNewline & _
"take {eef(sP1=1,""it"",""one"")} down and pass it round" & vbNewline & _
"{pluralBottles(sP1-1)} of beer on the wall" & vbNewline, i)
end if
next
end sub

sing 3```
