From Rosetta Code

Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.

Some quick things you should be aware of:

Template:Mylang Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.
Category:Unimplemented tasks by language A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.
Blogs, twitter, facebook... We have them, and are interested in yours.
Special:Webchat Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at http://irclog.perlgeek.de/rosettacode/today.
Rosetta Code:Village Pump A general Q/A and discussion area.
Rosetta Code:Finances For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.

Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code. --Michael Mol 17:38, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Info request on Ethiopian multiplication[edit]

Hi HicEst, In your entry for Ethiopian multiplication#HicEst, would you help me out by explaining what the END statement is matched to, as I looked at the definition of WRITE on the languages web site and it was used without needing a matching END as far as I can tell.

You have since added the comment that it is the 'end of "main"', but their seems to be no other use of "main" in the code. Are you perhaps missing a first line of:

  FUNCTION main

- Thanks, --Paddy3118 10:21, 6 April 2010 (UTC)


Hi Paddy3118, Thanks for your interest.

There is no need to define a "main" section in HicEst. "Main" simply starts with the first line of the script. In single step mode (debug) an END is not needed as well. But in trace mode or in run mode the END stops execution and thus prevents to run into a subsequent procedure.

Ta HicEst. --Paddy3118 17:16, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
