00:37 mou hey
00:39 mou i m on 100 doors enigma
00:39 mou thats hard
00:58 mwn3d_phone mou: is enigma a language?
01:06 mou no
01:06 mou look at this
01:07 mou http://rosettacode.org/wiki/100_doors
01:07 fedaykin "100 doors - Rosetta Code"
01:07 mou thats easy
01:07 mou range fonc choose non randoms numbers
01:08 mou I have understood with >>> i = 6 >>> for x in range(i, 100, i+1): print x  6 13 20 27 34 41 48 55 62 69 76 83 90 97 >>> i = 89 >>> for x in range(i, 100, i+1): print x  89 >>> i = 23 >>> for x in range(i, 100, i+1): print x  23 47 71 95 >>>

19:48 ErikSiers for the task [[Draw a sphere]], i have an apparently-working example from wikibooks: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/DarkBASIC_Prog​ramming/Original_single-page_version#Day_20
19:48 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Draw_a_sphere
19:49 ErikSiers the problem is, i can't verify that it works -- darkbasic refuses to run on my machine due to weird issues with installing directx v.current
19:49 ErikSiers how should i mark the example indicating such?
20:05 ErikSiers hm... that code isn't fdl, it's creative commons... never mind about my question; don't want the license-compatibility headache
20:29 mwn3d_phone ErikSiers: we have {{untested}}
20:29 mwn3d_phone Oh...I didn't read the last message
20:29 mwn3d_phone Oh well. Now you know we have that template.
20:30 ErikSiers yeah, i actually found untested just now :-) but cc-sa vs fdl... headache
20:30 ErikSiers if i can ever get darkbasic to play nice over here, i'll write my own example
20:46 ErikSiers got it sorted. creating simple objects (like spheres) is pretty uniform, so i can just create it without the other stuff in the wikibooks example
20:46 ErikSiers [[Draw a sphere#DarkBASIC]]
20:46 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wik​i/Draw_a_sphere#DarkBASIC
20:50 mikemol I like that [[Template|templ]] works in circumstances like these: http://rosettacode.org/wik​i/User_talk:24.85.131.247#.7B.7BTmpl.7Cworks_with.7D.7D_and_git
20:50 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Template|templ
20:55 ErikSiers pretty neat. beats having to type it all in by hand
21:17 mischi joined #rosettacode
21:46 ErikSiers hm. i just noticed that {{implementation|BASIC}} was removed from [[Category:BBC BASIC]] by richard russell (author of bbc basic)
21:46 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Category:BBC_BASIC
21:47 ErikSiers i don't know about that... it IS basic, after all, just not ms-compatible
21:48 mikemol Leave a note on his talk page and ask him.
21:48 mikemol Hypothetical question.
21:48 ErikSiers no, think i'll email him; he stopped posting at the end of may
21:50 mikemol If you have a program P, which will correctly run all correct programs in languages A and B, is it correct to say it is an implementation of A, and that it is an implementation of B?
21:51 mikemol I'm thinking about the implications of the answer to that question, as they apply to things like BASIC, C or any other language with multiple, not-completely-compatible implementations.
21:51 mikemol (i.e. program P1 and program P2 both implement A and B, but a program that runs under P1 may use an extension that's unavailable under P2)
21:52 ErikSiers if we're going to look at it that way, then very few modern basics are actual implementations of basic :-)
21:56 ErikSiers ok, i emailed mr. russell. we'll see if he replies. in the meantime, i'll do nothing
21:56 ErikSiers ...as far as bbc basic goes, anyway
