    I don't think he knows which language he's trying to use.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Which is kind of my point. On one side, we have someone who claims this is supposed to be "rewritten" to C++, and on one hand, we have someone who posts C code.
    So we need to make a decision. Is this C? Or is this C++? If it's C, then it shouldn't be here.

    The original code looks like pascal, for the most part, whatever it is, surely even an elementary grasp of c would have allowed you to convert the lines, or post an attempt, simply hoiking the code within main() is not going to happen.

    No, its syntax has nothing to pascal, BASIC I would say.
    I never put signature, but I decided to make an exception.

    As to guessing the language, it says so in the code!

    % abs needed because turing stores reals with a potential small error
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.

    you saying this is not found pascal?
    var
    :=

    Those things i remember, from code classes and they are certainly included in the scripting language supported by inno setup

    but ye it says turing

    Curly braces { } don't necessary indicate C.

    @anon: I didn't even know there is a 'turing' language, I though it was somehow related to Turing Machine.
    I know pascal, but not BASIC.

    Hey, why all the fuss? He asked for C code, i posted C code. If you disagree just move the thread. Anyway, in whatever language it was in, was easy to understand after all.

    And it's one less homework assignment jeromey has to worry about failing. Good luck on those tests, though!
