Re: A script proclaiming Arch's superiority

We wouldn't want our friends in Redmond to feel slighted, so I have ported this to Microsoft Visual Basic 6:

Module Superiority
  Sub Main()
      MsgBox("Arch is the best!") 
  End Sub
End Module

A VB.NET version is now in development.

Re: A script proclaiming Arch's superiority

Is it out of beta yet? I'd love to use it, but would hate to have unstable software on my box...

PS: Yes. This shows what a great community is capable of!

Re: A script proclaiming Arch's superiority

In an effort to spread Arch's word to new places, I've ported this super-app to the Motorola M68HC12 platform.

    ORG    $0800
    LDX    $F684
    LDY    #str
loop:    LDAB    0, Y
    BEQ    done
    JSR    0, X
    INY
    BRA    loop
done:    SWI

str    DC.B    $41,$72,$63,$68,$20,$69,$73,$20,$74,$68,$65,$20,$62,$65,$73,$74,$21,$00

Nope... It works fine here. This is Open Source anyway so anyone can improve the code and send back patches.

Re: A script proclaiming Arch's superiority

While all your efforts have been grand, none of your programs have properly captured the amazingness of Arch compared to the rest.  Thusly, I have converted the application into SPL:

archisbest.spl

Ode to Arch Linux, a play in six parts.

The Ghost, also known as Judd, former ruler of Arch.
Arthur, the good sir Aaron, new overlord.
Hamlet, a die-hard Archer.
Ophelia, lover of other distributions.

                     Act I: Praise for the Rulers.
  
                     Scene I: Glory to He Who Started the Arch.

[Enter The Ghost and Hamlet]

Hamlet:
 Thou art as noble as the quotient between the sum of a cunning 
 gentle handsome trustworthy noble mighty honest hero and a cute 
 angel and a golden summer's day.

 Speak your mind!

The Ghost:
 You are as bold as the difference between a charming cunning 
 peaceful fair fine gentle happy Lord and the difference between
 a blossoming amazing warm rich smooth hero and the sum of a
 happy animal and a cat.

Hamlet:
 Thou art as big as the sum of thyself and the sum of a kingdom 
 and the sum of a huge blue cunning handsome hero and a loving 
 mighty noble sweet trustworthy rose.

 Speak your mind!

The Ghost:
 Speak YOUR mind!

Hamlet:
 Thou art as good as the difference between thyself and the sum
 of a prompt proud trustworthy King and a golden angel.

 Speak your mind!

The Ghost:
 You cunning happy honest noble mighty hero!  Speak your mind!

[Exit Hamlet]
                     Scene II: The torch passes on.

[Enter Arthur]

Arthur:
 You are as lovely as the sum of yourself and a rose.

 Speak your mind!

The Ghost:
 YOU are as lovely as the sum of myself and the sum of a beautiful
 blossoming red rose and a delicious thing!

 Speak your mind!
                     
[Exit The Ghost]

[Enter Hamlet]

Arthur:
 Speak your mind!

[Exit Hamlet]

                     Act II: Dismissal of the Outsider.
  
                     Scene I: Aaron Takes The First Volley.

[Enter Ophelia]

Ophelia:
 Thou art as rotten as the difference between thyself and a pig!
 
 Speak your mind!

Arthur:
 You are as vile as the difference between The Ghost and a cat!
 
 Speak your mind!

Ophelia:
 Thou art as evil as the sum of The Ghost and a dusty lying leech!

 Speak your mind!

[Exit Arthur]

[Enter Hamlet]

Ophelia:
 Speak your mind!

[Exit Hamlet]

                     Scene II: Judd takes a stab.

[Enter The Ghost]

Ophelia: 
 You are as hairy as the difference between thyself and the 
 difference between a devil and an oozing infected rotten toad!

 Speak your mind!

 You are as rotten as Arthur! 

 Speak your mind!

The Ghost:
 You are as half-witted as the difference between thyself and
 the sum of a foul fat-kidneyed distasteful pig and the sum of 
 an evil plague and a goat!

 Speak your mind!

 You are as miserable as the difference between thyself and a 
 beggar!

 Speak your mind!

[Exit The Ghost]

                     Act III: Final Glory.
  
                     Scene I: Ophelia gets TOLD.

[Enter Arthur]

Ophelia: 
 You hound!

 Thou art as rotten as the sum of thyself and a cat!

Arthur:
 You are as stupid as the difference between a hero and
 a foul little oozing smelly disgusting codpiece!

                     Scene II: Ophelia is Converted.

Arthur:
 Speak your mind!

Ophelia: 
 Thou art as noble as the sum of thyself and a hero!

Arthur:
 Am I worse than the sum of a hero and a brave hero?

 If so, we must proceed to scene II.

 You rose. Open your heart!

 You are as healthy as the sum of a brave noble loving 
 hero and a red rose. 

 Speak your mind!
 
[Exeunt]

Here's a Makefile:

BIN       = archisbest
SOURCES   = $(wildcard *.spl)
SOURCES_C = $(SOURCES:.spl=.c)
CXX       = gcc
SPL2C     = spl2c
LIBSPL    = /usr/lib/libspl.a

all: $(BIN)
  
$(BIN): $(SOURCES_C)
  $(CXX) -lm -o $@ $< $(LIBSPL)

%.c: %.spl
  rm -f $@
  $(SPL2C) < $< > $@
  
clean:
  rm -f $(SOURCES_C)
  rm -f $(BIN)

Re: A script proclaiming Arch's superiority

I am going to have to ask you all respectfully to cease and desist development on this project as I already have a patent on an application that proclaims a state of being for an object.  It is patent # 348947.

I will thank you in the future for respecting my Intellectual property.


PS:  What the hell is Arch Linux?!?

Re: A script proclaiming Arch's superiority

I decided to take it upon myself to port this wonderful program to a few other languages.

#!/usr/bin/python
print "Arch is the best!"
#!/usr/bin/perl
print "Arch is the best!\n";
#!/usr/bin/php
<?php
echo "Arch is the best!\n";
?>
#include <stdio.h>

int main (void)
{
    print "Arch is the best!\n";
    return 0;
}
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
    cout << "Arch is the best!\n";
    return 0;
}
HAI
CAN HAS STDIO?
VISIBLE "Arch is the best!"
KTHXBYE
    SECTION .data

    msg    db    "Arch is the best!",0xa ; 
    len    equ     $ - msg

    SECTION .text
    global main

main:
        mov     eax,4        ; write system call
        mov     ebx,1           ; file (stdou)
        mov     ecx,msg         ; string
        mov     edx,len         ; strlen
    int     0x80        ; call kernel

    mov    eax,1        ; exit system call
        mov     ebx,0      
        int     0x80        ; call kernel
10 PRINT "Arch is the best!"
(defun archisthebest ()
  (print "Arch is the best!")
)
program ArchIsTheBest(output);
begin
  WriteLn('Arch is the best!');
end.
<?php
header("Content-type: image/gif");
$rscImage    = imagecreatetruecolor(80, 25);
$intFontC    = imagecolorallocate($rscImage, 255, 255, 255);
$intBGC        = imagecolorallocate($rscImage, 0, 0, 0);
imagestring($rscImage, 2, 5, 5, "Arch is the best!", $intFontC);

Please add to this if you feel the need!

Re: A script proclaiming Arch's superiority

@sco50000:  it would be good if you could put what language each is written in above the code.  I think I can pick them all but one...  What is third from the bottom?
