Ring Documentation, Release 1.

“Very interesting effort.” , Giannakakis Kostas (Greece)


“I am too lazy to open comment window and write message. But in your case I must say “Perfect” Really, create new
remarkable language like your Ring is really perfect job. Even create editor for your language in your language with
only few rows... Even noticed in rosettacode.org !
I read your previous articles and I tried these examples a few days ago and I will continue. I love Ring.
P.S.: Anders Hejlsberg, Niklaus Wirth, Bjarne Stroustrup, Ada Lovelace Hall of fame is waiting....”
, Martin Nedopil (Czech Republic )
“Ring seems very attractive to me through its very easy design and the Qt bindings. I like its declarative approach and
the generous documentation.”
, Shalok Shalom (Austria)
“Ring (and plenty of extension library + Qt) is wonderful.” , Kovacs Attila (Hungary)
“Since two days I’m trying Ring and I’m really impressed, in add to power commands and easy use, it’s really very
efficient and very fast.
Each day I hope to find the couple of the year PWCT+RING ... Maybe for my Christmas gift!!!! HO HO HO HO
Continue your fantastic job and congratulations.” , Jose Le Roux (France)
“There are 3 different styles, it looks like Python and C” , 64remy
“I was taking a tour around Rosettacode and have found Ring. I like the syntax a lot. It’s clean and easy to understand.
It looks like a very clean BASIC dialect without sigils. I can say that this is the easiest and the most BASIC-like
language I’ve ever tried.”
, Tomaaz
“Thanks for your effort. I took a quick look and found it interesting.
You are trying to follow more or less like Clipper with simple command and no rigid declaration rules. Good.”
, Anand Gupta
“Thanks for this wonderful language” , Vinod kc (India)
“Very enlightening. good job!” , Southmountain (United States)
“The thing I liked was the loop exiting” , Leon de boer (Australia)
“An outstanding and easy language to program with.” , Kenneth Burgo (Philippines)
“I chose your language as I feel I can understand it better than other languages” , Harry Singh
“I like the totality of the language, far more features than expected and the freedom of expressiveness is unique.”
, Evikone
“Thank you very much Mahmoud! I am using ring for many experiments and so far I love it.
I really want to continue using ring and contribute what I can.” , John (SienSystem)
“Sir, Very Good” , Kamlesh Patel
“That’s more than a “cool” syntax, the example of writing free-form text between curly-brackets such that each
word calls a function. Which could be interesting (A syntax like that would be nice for declaring text styles)”
, LaurieCheers
“If you browse around you see they have listed 160 contributors. This year they have entered Top 100 in the
TIOBE index. Lot of effort seem to have been made to make this language pop out and catch the attention
of masses.”
, Htuhola

Ring Documentation, Release 1.7

“I like the idea of The Ring being in ANSI C


it’s an impressive creation, and a lot of skill went into it” , Garry Taylor
“Very innovative language! Syntactically clean” , CodeProject Member
“The author must be commended for the readily-obvious hard work and effort that has gone into creating a rich
ecosystem for his language. It seems that the language is quite extensive as well. I would find it useful to see a BNF
grammar and concise coverage of its semantics.”
, Xx-Leninist-1917-Xx (Reddit)
“I can see the AI of the future using this technology to solve computational problems for..... the humans.” ,
Cryptonite (United States)
“I like your programming language, I like you are going to develop mobile app using RingQt and also I appreciate
your web library.”
, Domenico D’Oria (Italy)
“Congratulations for the great work with this new programming language.” , Kenny Silva (Venezuela)
“Ring is an amazingly full-featured language and so well documented (the bane of most newer languages out there!)”
, Alex McCullie
” I found the language yesterday, and liked the Qt bindings, as they give a declarative way to create a QtWidgets GUI.”
, Cochise Cesar
“Ring does look intriguing, and I’ll be reading more of the documentation soon” , Jamie Cooper
“I was recently considering designing my own dynamically-typed, prototypical language and then developing a means
to compile it into C/C++. However, last night I was surfing the web and noticed a little-known language called “Ring”
which you’ve recently created. I began reading the Motivation section in Wikibooks to see why the language was
designed and implemented, and I was shocked to see that someone else had created a language with the same intention
and need as myself. I mean, it’s mind-blowing that someone would have addressed every issue I have with the currently
accepted languages. Why bother with C/C++ when the syntax can be cryptic and they are largely antiquated - why
should we still be dealing with header files, etc? Moreover, your comments on Java and C# being too verbose and
forcing OOP onto the user is spot on as well - yet these languages are still primarily used by millions of programmers
for the most mundane tasks. At this point, I’m led to believe that it’s simply a matter of legacy applications that still
haven’t made the transition, as well as the ever-popular “Appeal to Popularity” fallacy shared by many in academia
and enterprise. Then we come to languages, that are easier and much more modern, and yet even now, are being to
show their age. Languages like Python which stresses whitespace and indentation, as well as (just like the formerly
mentioned languages) irrelevant tokens for the conditional statements. Granted, it’s not as bad as tracking down various
curly braces or semi-colons, but one misstep in indentation might as well be as frustrating to track down. The same
could be true of Ruby, except with Ruby, we have even odder conventions embedded into the design of the language,
which I don’t feel the need to address and moreover, we’re left with something like Lua which is missing a great many
features that the previously mentioned languages include. There are many more languages and faults with them, we
could claim that PHP is nothing more than a glue for web pages and backends but with so many frameworks available
now, it’s falling by the wayside fast. Javascript is constantly being cloned. So, each of these general purpose languages,
which we all know are mostly domain-specific and in some cases, also oriented at certain OS(C# was before 2016 and
Obj-C/Swift will likely always be primarily for MacOS apps). So, then we’re left with several additional options,
involving everything from hybrids to other imperative-based languages like D, GoLang, Scala, Julia, etc. But finally,
there’s a new language called Ring - and yes, it may just end up ruling them all. It’s the unicorn we’ve finally been
waiting to arrive, that can handle multiple domains, tasks, and paradigms. I honestly can’t wait to jump in and when I
do I probably won’t come back up anytime soon. My only apprehension is that the language may not include a library
or primitive functions for math as Python and Julia do. Aside from that, if so, hopefully, I won’t be having to use
linear expressions as arrays (considering how intellectually lazy it is to do) and that there will be more support/tools as
the community continues to grow. It’s crazy to think it’s only been around for a year and yet, it’s already, practically a
batteries-included language.”

This App is written in Ring.
It will fetch stock data from Yahoo and draw various types of charts. Any valid stock ticker can be entered, or selected
from the drop down list - Select Symbol.
It will not guarantee that you make money in the stock market. But it will visualize the history of the stock.

Author : John Storm (SienSystem)


Hi everyone,
Wanted to (finally) share a first release version of a small but very nice tool to shorten urls using the Google shortener
API. The code is fully documented, maybe too documented, but, provides a good reference as to what is going on.
You can obtain your own API key, or you can use my key to test and use the tool.
Hope you enjoy the application. Please feel free to test at your convenience.
Ring is FUN!!

1.10 Windows StartUp Manager Application

URL : https://github.com/ring-lang/WinStartupManager
Author : Majdi Sobain
Windows Startup Manager is an application that has the ability to let the user control what programs should start at
Windows booting time. It gives you the ability to show, edit, delete, or even add new programs entries to be lunched
at Windows booting time.
It is specialized at managing Windows startup entries that are stored in Windows Registry only, but provides a quick
option to edit programs shortcuts type entries.
