    Recently I came across an article where the author finds most of the candidates interviewed for the post of a developer can't write basic code, so he gave everyone a simple test called "FizzBuzz Test", which is as follows:

    Write a program that prints the numbers from 1 to 100. But for multiples of three print "Fizz" instead of the number and for the multiples of five print "Buzz". For numbers which are multiples of both three and five print "FizzBuzz".

    Read more here http://imranontech.com/2007/01/24/using-fizzbuzz-to-find-developers-who-grok-coding/

    Some newbies in the forum might consider posting a solution the problem in wichever language they wish to.

    Lets make it interesting.
    I request G4EF members to write the above mentioned program in ANY language of their choice, provided the same language has not been used by any other member in any of the previous posts in this thread.

    Let me start with C
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
          unsigned N, flag = 0;
          for( N = 1; N < 101; ++N, flag = 0 )
          {
                if ( ! (N % 3) )      {      printf("Fizz");      flag = 1;      }
                if ( ! (N % 5) )      {      printf("Buzz");      flag = 1;      }
                if ( ! flag )         printf("%d", N);
                putchar(10);
          }
          return 0;
    }

    this is really cool... :) !

    I have it here in perl

    Code:
    perl -le 'print (($_%15)?(($_%3)?(($_%5)?$_:"Buzz"):"Fizz"):"FizzBuzz") for 1..100'
    OR
    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    
    for (1..100){
        print (($_%15)?(($_%3)?(($_%5)?$_."\n":"Buzz\n"):"Fizz\n"):"FizzBuzz\n");
    }
    
    let me know ur views... !

    Please ALWAYS post code inside code-blocks. (I request shabbir to edit the above post.)

    I would really wish to see the FizzBuzz program in some esoteric programming language :wink:

    :eek: :surprised What was that shabbir ?!

    Where is the main func ?
    Writing the whole code in a single line, significantly reduces the readability of your code.

    for i in `seq 1 100`

    And a better one that doesn't use variables:
    Code:
    : prog1 
    20 1 do
    0
    i 3 mod 0= if ." fizz" drop 1 then
    i 5 mod 0= if ." buzz" drop 1 then
    0= if i . else ."  " then
    loop ;

    @ xpi0t0s : Please do mention the language (atleast in your code-block), before posting any code.

    BTW, that code looks like Forth, am I right ??


    One more by me : (in HLA = High Level Assembly)
    Code:
    program FizzBuzz;
    
    #include ("stdlib.hhf");
    
    static
    	Number:			int32 := 1;
    
    begin FizzBuzz;
    	mov(101, ebx);
    	mov(1, Number);
    	while(Number < ebx) do
    		mov(0,ecx);
    		mov(Number,eax);
    		mov(3,dl);
    		div(dl);
    		if (ah = 0) then
    			mov(1,ecx);
    			stdout.put("Fizz");
    		endif;
    		mov(Number,eax);
    		mov(5,dl);
    		div(dl);
    		if(ah = 0) then
    			mov(1,ecx);
    			stdout.put("Buzz");
    		endif;
    		if(! ecx) then
    			stdout.put(Number);
    		endif;
    		stdout.put(nl);
    		inc(Number);
    	endwhile;
    end FizzBuzz;

    Finalllyyyy... After struggling with BrainF*ck for 3 hours, I conclude that the language truly justifies its name !

    Here is my BF code for some thing as simple as a Fizz-Buzz test :

    Code:

     # # *   This BrainF*ck program is written by Saswat Padhi   *
     # # *   I have done much labour on this code as writing a   *
     # # *   BF code is not easy; even harder than ASM     ;)    *
     # # *                                                       *
     # # *   Believe it or not I have spent 3 hours writing this *
     # # *   shit(looking) code !                                *
     # # *                                                       *
     # # *   If you want to use this code; please give me some   *
