Quick tip:  Even though you can generate the html documentation files for the included libraries when you download the source, they're not complete due to the size of the complete set (about 34M).

If you want to get a complete set of the current STABLE library docs, use wget:

Code: [Select]
wget -rl 2 http://nimrod-code.org/lib.html
This is especially useful for viewing offline.

Thanks for the tip AIR!

Is there a current Doxygen for Nimrod floating around?

I was getting an error about unable to resolve host on Ubuntu Server when I tried entering AIR's wget command.

Found out when you have to add DNS servers in your /etc/network/interfaces
So I added these to the end of the file and restarted the VM of Ubuntu Server and it worked.
dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4

These are Google's name servers.

AIR's wget worked fine for me as is.

Found this today too while reading Nimrod's forums.

Jester
The sinatra-like web framework for Nimrod. Jester provides a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Nimrod, it currently mimics sinatra almost completely:

Code: Text
  1. # myapp.nim
  2. import jester, strtabs, htmlgen
  3.  
  4. get "/":
  5.   resp h1("Hello world")
  6.  
  7. run()
Compile and run with:

nimrod c -r myapp.nim

I briefly saw the Jester API but haven't had time to look at it in detail.

Update - After taking a second look at the Nimrod interface to Jester / Sinatra, it looks like a Ruby scripting front end. I have heard good and bad things about Ruby. I haven't spent any time with Ruby so I can't give an opinion either way.

What does interest me is Nimrod's ability to generate JavaScript as well as C and a couple others. Cloud9 IDE is written in JavaScript. (using Node.js) Being able to create client side web applications in a language native to all browsers makes Nimrod the more valuable and the right language to develop with.

@ALL - If you want developer access to the Cloud9 IDE site for this project, you need to let me know with a post here or an e-mail. I'm not granting access to strangers.

I just released uCalc Transform just moments ago.  Sorry for the delay in response.  I plan to take a look at this thread & other messages and get back with everybody tomorrow.  I'm interested in this project.

Thanks for your interest in the BAS2NIM project. I'm looking forward to seeing what you are able to come up with translating BASIC code to Nimrod.

uCalc Transform is an innovative tool designed to let you transform text in unprecedented ways. Some of the things you might use it for include:
  • Converting old legacy source code to a new format
  • Refactoring source code
  • Translating source code from one programming language to another
  • Convert text between various formats: XML, HTML, CSV, JSON, etc.
  • Automating repetitive search replace operations on any text
  • Advanced search/replace using patterns instead of just words

I wanted to see how easy or hard it would be do try the old wordcount challenge in Nimrod, so I gave it a go.

It's not quite finished, because it doesn't tally the number of individual word occurrences, but I still found it fairly easy to get to this point.

Code: [Select]
Import os,  strutils

proc QuickSort*(list: seq[string]): seq[string] =

    if list.len == 0:
        return @[]
    var pivot = list[0]
    var left,right: seq[string] = @[]
   
    for value in list:
        if value < pivot:
            left.add(value)     
        elif value > pivot:
            right.add(value)

    result = QuickSort(left) & pivot & QuickSort(right)
     

 
if existsFile("kjv.txt"):
    let src = readFile("kjv.txt")
   
    let separators = {'\32', '(', ')', '0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', '-', '\39',  '.', ',', ';', ':', '!', '?','\10'}
    var x = src.tolower().split(separators)
   
    echo "Total Number of Words: ", x.len   
    var list = x.QuickSort()
   
    echo "Total Unique Words: ",list.len

    var output = open("output.txt",fmWrite)
    output.writeln("Total Number of Words: " & $x.len)
    output.writeln("Total Unique Words: " & $list.len & "\n")
    for x in list:
        output.writeln(x)
    output.close()

Nice!

Please don't get me wrong, I think Nimrod is an easy to use compilable high level language. I will take your initial advice to me and ...

Why not just write it in Nimrod from the start?

An that is exactly what I will be doing from now on unless your pyBAS2NIM materializes.

Ok, I reworked the example and was able to finish it:

Code: [Select]
Import os,  strutils, tables

var tab = initOrderedTable[string,int]()
     
if existsFile("kjv.txt"):
    let src = readFile("kjv.txt")
   
    let separators = {'\32', '(', ')', '0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', '-', '\39',  '.', ',', ';', ':', '!', '?','\10'}
    var x = src.tolower().split(separators)
   
    for word in x:
        if tab.hasKey(word):
            tab[word] = tab[word]+1
        else:
            tab[word] = 1

    tab.sort(proc (x, y: tuple[key: string, val: int]): int = cmp(x.key, y.key))

    var Total  =  "Total Words: " & $x.len
    var Unique =  "Total Unique Words: " & $tab.len & "\n"
   
    echo Total
    echo Unique
   
    var output = open("output.txt",fmWrite)
    output.writeln(Total)
    output.writeln(Unique)
    for key, val in tab.pairs():
        output.writeln(key, ": ", val)
    output.close()

If that doesn't get you to switch to Nimrod, you're hopeless.  :)

The more I play with Nimrod the more I love it. It's like Santa Claus moved in.  ;D

Nimrod - SDL2
« Reply #73 on: October 29, 2013, 07:40:00 PM »
From the author of nimgame a new SDL2 Nimrod Extension Module has been  released on Github.

Quote from: README.md
sdl2-nim 0.9 alpha

sdl2-nim is a wrapper of the SDL 2 library for the Nimrod language.

    SDL homepage: http://www.libsdl.org/
    Nimrod homepage: http://nimrod-code.org/

You need to have SDL 2 dynamic libraries installed on your system.

NOTE: project in alpha-phase, not all features are supported yet, work in progress.
