The..Turing..Walkthrough


Welcome to the Walkthrough! This is a listing of the important tutorials in the [Turing Tutorials] forum. They are sorted by when you should learn them. In this way, it's sort of like a book. You can teach yourself Turing with this guide. It is unlike a book, though, in that the articles here are written by many different authors. A consequence of this is that styles will change from article to article. It is possible also that coding convention will change from article to article. This is regrettable. The best thing you can do is to follow the coding conventions yourself, and be consistent with yourself, even if you happen to be reading code that doesn't. That said, be sure to keep the Style Guidelines by wtd close at hand. Read the guidelines every now and then, and follow them!

This Walkthrough is written for people who are learning Turing without any prior programming experience. As such, if you are already a programming whiz and are just trying to tuck the Turing language under your belt, you might get a little bored by the pace of these tutorials. If so, you might want to consider reading a fastpaced introduction to Turing by Token. It won't take you all the way through Turing, but it'll take you through all the basic stuff that you really just want to learn the syntax for. For some of the more advanced topics, such as object oriented programming, you should probably read the regular Walkthrough tutorial, because Turing does OOP so different from other languages. If you know another language, you should check out Turing Translations by wtd. It translates many different introductory concepts into a dozen or so other languages. Find the code bits in the language(s) you know, understand them, then read how to do the same thing in Turing!

With that said, dive in! Check out the Essentials section and start reading the first tutorial on an unfamiliar topic. Also, glance over the Extras section and get an idea of what material is there. Then, whenever you feel you're ready (read: whenever you want to take a break from the real stuff and have some fun making games), read some of that material. The material there is mostly about graphics and advanced input. You know, game stuff.

Yes, though that only covers Buttons. There's a whole whack of other widgets that aren't explained. Not that they are much different, mind you. The most important part of a GUI tutorial would be explaining the general structure that GUI requires of your code: action procedures, widget creation, GUI.ProcessEvent. An expansion on this tutorial to cover things such as textfields, textboxes, radio buttons, check buttons, and the like would be good.
It is listed in the Improving Tutorials thread.

i have a question about view update.. i used thee
View.Set("offscreenonly") code and then the view update inside a loop

but the thing is how do i end it? because i have other animations going on after and they dont show cuz of the view set.. is there to end it? or do i have to use view update through the whole thing?

Author:  Andy [ Mon Apr 24, 2006 8:41 am ]

it's actually surprisingly simple

View.Set("nooffscreenonly")

Do you guys think that should really by in the Walkthrough? I'm considering removing it, as I don't think it's all that important. File I/O and the Dir module--yes. Sys.Exec? Probably not.

Not too mention what kind of potentially harmful ideas it would bring up in people...

Although some of those functions (mainly their potential uses) are a bit interesting. System.FetchArg()? Sys.GetEnv()? Sys.GetPid? Still, I don't think that warrants a walkthrough.

*edit* Argh, I can't spell today. One of my many mistakes being misspelling "edit" as "exit". Rolling Eyes Anyway...

And you guys didn't tell me? Gosh!

The Sys section has been removed. Though [Gandalf] is right: Sys.FetchArg is something that is good to know. Well, maybe someone will right a brief tutorial exclusively for Sys.FetchArg. That could then float around in free space or possibly be included in the Walkthrough.

Post subject: 

as in higher on the list? I would probably agree. Perhaps right after the If statements and Loops, before the graphics. It seems to be a reasonable transition.. figure out how to repeat stuff in a loop, then export that common code to a function.

Ok.

How about moving recursion up to accompany the change?

Perhaps arrays and records should also come earlier.

Author:  Cervantes [ Mon Oct 09, 2006 4:39 pm ]
Post subject: 

What about extracting all the junk about drawing and mouse input and the like. Put that in a separate section that can be learned at pretty much any point in the Walkthrough. Sort of like, "if you're bored with the real stuff, go here for a bit to relax".

Author:  [Gandalf] [ Mon Oct 09, 2006 5:10 pm ]
Post subject: 

How about a "concepts" section, and then a "Turing specific" section or something along those lines.

Arrays and records could be put a bit earlier, that I agree with, recursion not so much. Wink

Author:  Clayton [ Mon Oct 09, 2006 9:26 pm ]
Post subject: 

But recursion is a fairly big concept (or important as another word for it), I agree with wtd in that it should be higher up in the list.

The idea of a "concepts" part of the walkthrough and a "Turing Specific" part is one that i like Razz

I think something that hasn't been discussed and stressed enough is proper style with procedures and functions. Stuff like global variables and parameters. Becasue I didn't learn this, my Final Project turned out really bad: a sea of global variables and parameter-less procedures:

It is my belief that simply placing more emphasis on fucntions and procedures and parameters would greatly reduce such problems.

The key, I think, is to make sure that the scope of the problem posed to a student does not eclipse the capabilities of the tools to which they have been exposed. In other words: do not ask a student to create even the simplest game before you teach them to create functions and procedures, or you will get bad style code.

Thank you cervantes, if i would have noticed this before, then i would have read it. but right now i have no time to read it. i will later then i will begin to input programs into the turing source code.

It strikes me that a Turing style guideline could be a very good thing.


  • Comment formatting standards
  • General code formatting suggestions
  • Formatting guidelines with regards to specific syntactic constructs
  • Semantic guidelines (scoping and functions vs. procedures, for instance)
  • Naming conventions for variables, functions, procedures, types, classes, modules, etc.

Author:  ericfourfour [ Tue Nov 21, 2006 11:07 pm ]
Post subject: 

There are a few ways you can go about doing sprites. You can either have an array of images and cycle though them but you will have to keep track of which one is being displayed or you can have a linked list. The latter is more advanced but easier if you know how to make them.

I've updated the Walkthrough. It's now in Version 2! Huzaa! Posts beyond this post are probably about version 2. Posts before this post are about version 1.
Please comment on Version2. How can I improve it?

For archival purposes, here is version 1.


__________________________________________
The Turing Walkthrough

Version 1.0


Are you new to programming? Are you new to Turing? Are you learning, but not a complete n00bz0rz? Either way, this walkthrough is for you. If you are new to Turing, start at the beginning. If you already know some stuff, sift through the titles until you find the next thing you need to learn.
You may have never heard of some of the topics in this walkthrough, but that doesn't matter. Everything is sorted based on when you should learn it.
What's more, this walkthrough contains suggestions for programs to write to solidify your understanding of the concepts taught in these tutorials. The program suggestions are imbedded into the tutorial list at the appropriate point. Keep in mind that they are merely suggestions. You don't necessarily have to write the programs, though it is recommended that you frequently write programs that use the ideas taught if you are new to programming.

What's that, you say? "I'm NOT new to programming, but you went babbling on as though I was! How rude!"
My apologies. Most of the tutorials in this walkthrough are aimed towards those who are new to Turing and to programming in general, and will therefore go at a slower pace than someone who is an experienced programmer (with other languages) would desire. That said, if you want to go at a faster pace, you can start with a quick runthrough, up to Mouse.Where, by Token.
If anyone is interested in writting quality fast paced tutorials, feel free to do so. Make sure they don't overlap what Token has already done, mind you! When there are more, I will create a section after the Walkthrough called "Runthrough.

This walkthrough is like a book, except it's pieced together from articles written by different people. As a result, writing and teaching styles will change; what's more, naming conventions may change from one article to the next. This is regrettable. The best thing you can do is to follow the conventions, yourself, even if you are from time to time reading some code that doesn't follow these conventions. So, while working through this walkthrough, keep the Style Guidelines handy and refer to it often.

Excellently done once again Minsclevernuts! Claping

One thing I might change is putting arrays before string manipulation. After all, strings in Turing act a lot like character arrays, which I suspect they are when compiled to C/C++ code.

Author:  Clayton [ Sat Dec 30, 2006 4:23 pm ]
Post subject: 

Excellent Minsc! I like the idea of seperating the tutorials into different sub-categories. Perhaps this will help get the idea across to newer students that graphics are not the most important thing in the world. I also agree with [Gandalf] that arrays might be able to go before string manipulation, but I guess it doesn't really matter Very Happy Good stuff once again.

Author:  Cervantes [ Sun Dec 31, 2006 2:06 am ]
Post subject: 

I too thought about this. The thing is that the current String Manipulation tutorial does not require a previous knowledge of arrays. If the student gets through the string manipulation tutorial, he should be good for arrays, since he's already been doing them, sort of, without knowing it.

But that's probably a bad idea. I suppose it should be switched. Switching it, however, would mean that string manipulation basically becomes an exercise in arrays, and not much of a tutorial is needed.

I suppose I should make the change. I'll do it tomorrow, I think. I'd to give the change for some more feedback.


Also, here's a question (or two): what about enumerated types? Should they be in the essentials section? I think they're probably important, but under-used. Also, what do you think about the inclusion of the bitwise operators tutorial?

Author:  [Gandalf] [ Sun Dec 31, 2006 3:13 am ]
Post subject: 

Yep, that's where it becomes a bit more confusing. Thus far, the "Essentials" section seems to be a general concepts section. To better categorize each tutorial you can divide this into essential concepts and additional or more rarely used concepts.

Sorry for the late reply, but can't you just do Music.PlayFile or Music.PlayFileLoop? (I think that's what they're called.) Then if you want to change the song, just Music.Stop, then play a new file.

Hi, i am making a game for my class project using turing. Basically its going to be a fighter, not to complex since i am short on time. But what i was thinking is like having this guy run through places and enemies randomly appearing in front of him and attacking him. Now the problems i have is that, well first i should tell you that i have gotten him to run back and forth and jump and thats all i have, but what i really need to know is how can i make enemies randomly appear and have him attack them by pressing a key and have them attack back. Any help appreciated. thank you

This walkthrough describes a collection of tools. It tells you how to hammer a nail and saw a board. You're asking how to build a house. You cannot build a house without knowing how to use your tools, and you cannot create an animation or any program without understanding loops, variables, or if statements.
