I decided that I’d give it a shot when I got home using Python and Bash, just to see if I could (I was sure I could, but you know, wanted to make sure).
Sure enough, with a bit of googling to remember some syntax fo Python, and learn some syntax for bash, I had two stupid little programs for fizz buzz.
def main(): my_number = input("Enter a number: ") if not my_number.isdigit(): return else: my_number = int(my_number) if my_number%3 == 0 and my_number%15!=0: print("fizz") elif my_number%5 == 0 and my_number%15!=0: print("buzz") elif my_number%15 == 0: print("fizz buzz") else: print(my_number) if __name__ == '__main__': main()
#! /bin/bash echo "Enter a Number: " read my_number re='^[+-]?[0-9]+$' if ! [[ $my_number =~ $re ]] ; then echo "error: Not a number" >&2; exit 1 fi if ! ((my_number % 3)) && ((my_number % 15)); then echo "fizz" elif ! ((my_number % 5)) && ((my_number % 15)); then echo "buzz" elif ! ((my_number % 15)) ; then echo "fizz buzz" else echo my_number fi
And because if it isn’t in GitHub it didn’t happen, I committed it to my fizz-buzz repo.
I figure it might be kind of neat to write it in as many languages as I can, you know … for when I’m bored.
