On the n’th day of Christmas, my (assert love=true) love sent to me…

25 12 2009

As an excuse to get all the IDEs and compilers I might possibly need running on my Vostro, plus to get in the Christmas spirit and code something in languages I haven’t used in a while, enjoy the Twelve Days of Christmas. I got bored after MIPs, maybe I’ll get around to adding on a SKILL/LISP implementation and VHDL later.


set days [list\
	"first" "second" "third"\
	"fourth" "fifth" "sixth"\
	"seventh" "eighth" "ninth"\
	"tenth" "eleventh" "twelfth"]

set gifts [list\
	"partridge in a pear tree"\
	"Two turtle doves"\
	"Three French hens"\
	"Four calling birds"\
	"Five golden rings"\
	"Six geese a-laying"\
	"Seven swans a-swimming"\
	"Eight maids a-milking"\
	"Nine ladies dancing"\
	"Ten lords a-leaping"\
	"Eleven pipers piping"\
	"Twelve drummers drumming"]

for {set i 0} {$i < 12} {incr i} {
           puts "On the [lindex $days $i] day of Christmas,"
           puts "My true love sent to me,"
for {set j $i} {$j > 0} {incr j -1} {
		puts "[lindex $gifts $j],"

	if {$i == 0} {
		puts "A [lindex $gifts 0].\n"
	} else {
		puts "And a [lindex $gifts 0].\n"

In C,


int main() {
	const char *days[12] = {"first", "second", "third",
		"fourth", "fifth", "sixth",\
		"seventh", "eighth", "ninth",\
		"tenth", "eleventh", "twelfth"};

	const char *gifts[12] = {"partridge in a pear tree",\
	"Two turtle doves",\
	"Three French hens",\
	"Four calling birds",\
	"Five golden rings",\
	"Six geese a-laying",\
	"Seven swans a-swimming",\
	"Eight maids a-milking",\
	"Nine ladies dancing",\
	"Ten lords a-leaping",\
	"Eleven pipers piping",\
	"Twelve drummers drumming"};

	int i, j;
	for (i = 0; i < 12;i++) {
            printf("On the %s day of Christmas,\n", days[i]);
            printf("My true love sent to me,\n");
 		for (j = i; j > 0; j--)
			printf("%s,\n", gifts[j]);

		if (i == 0)
			printf("A %s.\n\n", gifts[0]);
			printf("And a %s.\n\n", gifts[0]);

In Java,

public class song {
	private final static String days[] = {
		"first", "second", "third",
		"fourth", "fifth", "sixth",
		"seventh", "eighth", "ninth",
		"tenth", "eleventh", "twelvth"};

	private final static String gifts[] = {
		"partridge in a pear tree",
		"Two turtle doves",
		"Three French hens",
		"Four calling birds",
		"Five golden rings",
		"Six geese a-laying",
		"Seven swans a-swimming",
		"Eight maids a-milking",
		"Nine ladies dancing",
		"Ten lords a-leaping",
		"Eleven pipers piping",
		"Twelve drummers drumming"};

	public static void main(String args[]) {
		for (int i = 0; i < 12;i++) {
                      System.out.println("On the " + days[i] + " day of Christmas,");
                      System.out.println("My true love sent to me,");
		      for (int j = i; j > 0; j--)

			if (i == 0)
				System.out.println("A " + gifts[0] + ".");
				System.out.println("And a " + gifts[0]);
