Turing Programs

Turing 4.1.1 is now free at... http://compsci.ca/blog/download-turing-411/

What it does...

The Turing computer language is a product of Holt Software of Toronto, Canada. It is an educational language with similarities to C, C++, Pascal and Java.

The compressed folder TuringLibrary.zip contains source code that can be run with the Turing language. Some of these programs require one or more library routines also found in the compressed folder.

The Programs...

LIFE.T John Conway's Game of Life programmed in Turing

CELL.T A simulation of germ and white blood cell population dynamics programmed in Turing; this helped my 8-year old son understand the fever he had at the time.

SKETCH.T A simulation of a child's sketch toy programmed in Turing; this was the class exercise in an eight week middle school programming class.
