Syntax

Turing is designed to have a very lightweight, readable, intuitive syntax. Here is the entire Hello World! program in Turing with syntax highlighting:

put "Hello World!"

Turing avoids semicolons and braces, using explicit end markers for most language constructs instead, and allows declarations anywhere. Here is a complete program defining and using the traditional recursive function to calculate a factorial.

 % Accepts a number and calculates its factorial
 fun factorial (n)
      if n = 0
           result 1
      else
           result n * factorial (n - 1)
 
 fun loop()
      get n
      if n < 0
            put "The factorial of ", n, " is ", factorial (n)
            result n
      else
            result loop()
 
 loop()
