One program in 515 languages

The 99 Bottles Of Beer project is one of the stranger pieces of geekery you'll find on the net.

Its aim is to collect programs that print the lyrics of that old "favourite" song in as many different computer languages as possible - from the sublime to the ridiculous (and not avoiding the downright scary!)...

10 REM BASIC Version of 99 Bottles of beer
20 FOR X=100 TO 1 STEP -1
30 PRINT X;"Bottle(s) of beer on the wall,";X;"bottle(s) of beer"
40 PRINT "Take one down and pass it around,"
50 PRINT X-1;"bottle(s) of beer on the wall"
(link found on that source of all good links: Boing Boing)
