A programming language
developed by U of T
and sold though Holdsoft
I found the syntax to be very similar to Pascal. It is a good language to learn programming with but once you have grasped the basic concepts of coding it is time to move on. And, yes it is named after Alan Turing. Oh, and even though it may say on HoldSoft's web page that "Turing is used generally used to teach programming at many universities in the United States and Canada as well as institutions
around the world. ", I am yet to find someone from outside of Ontario that knows that Turing is a programming language, never mind uses it.
Example of Turing Code:
% Roll a die until you get 6. (This line is a comment)
var die : int
randint (die, 1, 6)
exit when die = 6
put "This roll is ", die
put "Stopping with roll of 6"
I think the development of Turing
has stopped. Most of their effort is going in to OOT
(Which is actual not that bad a language to make fast dirty programs
