hey i found turing fun once (during comp sci classes) but now with no incentive or even reason t omake a good program.. and when i start one i never finish it casue i get sick of it so quick... i dun wanna make nothing no this is my last/latest program i've made... lol


put"Is Useless"
put"And Stupid"
put"Sorry If this offened"
put"you actually waited this long?"

put gimme bits Very Happy ...
i am sad and disgruntled Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Mad

actually, turing isn't all that useless, it can do some cool stuff. i usually like to say positive things about program because that is my nature, and if that is all you are capable of then very good for you and i hope that you continue to learn more.

Hey, your name effects make you look professional, the program doesn't, um... have 2 bits.

nice program...
name effects piff, it's not like in the real world it's all about looks.. see what matters is your skill.. Smile

Dude we had this debate , ther is no need for new people to come here and see apps like that, turing is a great footer langage , without it BASIC would have made no sense to me , i was using about 20 commands i useid in turing , and i was learning how to do things by translating turing code to BASIC , dont bring it down like that , none of us apreciate it ( well mabye a select few do Twisted Evil ) but not i , there is no need for this

if you're board in Turing, I suggest making a game. they are the most fun programs to make (obviously).

depending on your ability you could make pong, tic tac toe, either of those with AI, the helicopter game on or a host of other games. Check out the sticky in Turing Help "so you're looking for game ideas, check here first" or something like that


PS Thinking shorthair how'd your bits jump up a thousand in 1 day Question

What #16 misses is that when you attack something there are two possible outcomes.
1. Justified attack: get a lot of, "ya, good point", "you said it", "and another thing"
2. Unjustified attack: Thinking "What the heck are you talking about?" Your attack doesn't offend people so much as it makes them simply write off everything you say because you really don't have a full understanding yet.

It's unfortunate that you didn't have a good experience with Turing. I suggest you learn another language (like C) then you'll be able to compare from a position of knowledge rather than a gut feeling.

man shorthair you are having too much fun with the smilies...

learn vb, it's easier.

shorthair, where do you get those smilies, is it where it links to, cause doesn't that load adware on comps

Post subject: 

jonos... the point of boarder16 trying to learn C is that he CAN'T. without Turing knowledge learning a complex but good language like C is very very difficult.. maybe its possible in VB, depending on your intelligence. Wink

if it loads adware on your comp, get AdAware! Smile

Turing is not a language that is used much for commercial products. things like C or C++ are though. Turing is used to teach compsci because Turing is easy to learn... Mckenzie did something like this

put "hello world"

cout <."hello world".>

(I got that one totally wrong, and same with Java. I got the commands right though Smile )

System.Print.Out "hello world"

basically Turing is the easiest language to learn. without learning how to solve problems in programing learning something like C is REALLY hard

Author:  Paul [ Sun Feb 01, 2004 2:54 pm ]
Post subject: 

I thought it was for java

System.out.print ( "Hello world"); <-- need this after a command


System.out.println ( "Hello World");

for a line

for c, isnt it cout<<"hello world\n"?

Author:  Cervantes [ Sun Feb 01, 2004 3:08 pm ]
Post subject: 

I told you guys I got the syntax wrong but nooo you gotta go nitpicking.. Evil or Very Mad

the point is what the heck is cout?! put is a lot more understandable to someone who is starting to learn programing.
not only cout but the << and the \n and the ( ) and the ;

turing , pascal , python <--- all learning languages , once again start with that it makes other easier becuase you try to relate their difficult syntax to turing code or somthing , i like to port my programs to basic for practise

Author:  Paul [ Sun Feb 01, 2004 3:43 pm ]
Post subject: 

I don't know about that, if I had started Java before I started turing, I would have thought about programs Java wise, now whenever I made a program in Java, I have to think how I would do it in Turing, and thats a bother.

Post subject: 

C is a better example then Java. still Java has GOT to be harder to learn than Turing...

Author:  jonos [ Sun Feb 01, 2004 4:26 pm ]
Post subject: 

c++ is cout << "hello mars" << endl;
cout << "hello mars\n";

c is
printf ("akl;sl");
or something like that, i don't know anything about the c one.

yeah! there's even a wierd difference between C and C++!! Exclamation Exclamation

Turing is easy. other's aren't Smile

my question is why are people still posting in this thread, im stopping as of now.

Author:  Andy [ Sun Feb 01, 2004 4:58 pm ]
Post subject: 

actually printf works in c++ too... u just have to include stdio.h or cstdio when using namespace... the main difference between c and c++ is the fact that c++ has classes... but McKenzie said there are some other minor changes too...

damn it people, quit spamming in the submission forum, that's why we have GD and Spam. I'm locking this.

a warning also, from now on, I won't be hesitating to delete or lock any topic in the Turing section if I see that there is some kind of spamming going on.
