Test Your Program's IQ

Post by JackKelly » Tue May 21, 2019 5:26 pm

ImageHere's a fun program to test the IQ of your programs. It reports a raw score primarily based on the number of logical expressions in the .bas file. Most of the complexity is ensuring that conditional keywords are not accidently picked up in remarks or strings. Lately, at the urging of Richard, I have been trying hard to eliminate GOTOs and labels from my programs. I couldn't figure out a graceful way, though, to eliminate them from this program. I would really like to have the Liberty BASIC language support multiple NEXTs in FOR loops, LOOPs in DO loops, and WENDs in WHILE loops, in addition to EXITs of course.

Tentatively I think in this program a raw score of 20 might equate to an average IQ of 100. The highest possible IQ should be 200. The program is LB4.5 and JB compatible, so everyone can test their best programs. My highest scoring program was 802, which might equate to an IQ of around 175. I would be grateful if anyone can suggest an algebraic equation to calculate the IQ from the raw score. I'm sure such an equation would have something to do with logarithms and exponents.Image

Jack

That's a WOW, Rob. I don't think anyone will ever beat Cabinet Planer! Thanks for posting your record breaker. :o
