The programming language Thring is Damed for the British mathematician and laptop scientist Alan Mathison 'lUring (1912-1954). Thring's contributions to desktop technological know-how started in 1936, while he released a landmark paper at the limits of mechanical computation. The mathematical version brought within the paper is referred to now as a unuing computer" and varieties the root of the fashionable idea of computability. in the course of global battle II, Thring performed an incredible position within the layout of the Colossus, an digital computer that deciphered. coded messages. In 1951, he proposed a try, now referred to as the Thring try, to reply to the query: Can a computer imagine? at the present time, the main amazing award given via the world's greatest organization for computing execs, the organization for Computing equipment, is named the Thring Award. The programming language Thring was once designed by way of Richard C. Holt and James R. Cordy on the college of Toronto as a primary language for machine technology classes. Thring is a realistic language fitted to general-purpose applications.

Example text

6 Comments A comment in a program is a piece of text intended for people rather than for a computer to read. Comments do not affect the computation performed by a program and, in fact, Turing discards comments when it executes a program. Turing provides two forms of comment. The short form is a message that begins with the character "%" and continues to the end of the line. Any text on the left of the "%" is part of the program. Text on the right of the "%" is the comment. The comment may contain any characters, including "%".

For example, we could enter 2, which Turing would read. as the real number 2. O. 000 o Reading Strings To see how Turing treats strings, suppose that we declare a string variable S and then use a get statement to read a value into it. 3. The first two lines show the effect of the statement get S. Turing reads 22 Chapter 1. First Concepts Statement Characters Entered get S drum. drum. get S drum. are noisy drum. get S "drum. are noisy" drum. are noisy get S "" (empty string) get S, 4 drum. drum getS:* drum.

It has the same initial value as Original, but its value changes as the program runs. The value of Copy mod 2 is the remainder when Copy is divided by 2. Thus the expression Copy mod 2 f. 0 is true if Copy is an odd number. Each time the program starts a new cycle of the loop, there are three cases to consider, depending on the value of Copy. First, if the number is equal to 1, it is a power of 2 because 2° = 1. Second, if the number is odd and greater than I, it cannot be a power of 2. For these cases, no further looping is necessary and the exit statement terminates the loop.
