Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
I think it would be better to check the C code first. Compared to the original, the present code has apparently been optimised to skip the odd products i*j which aren't needed for finding the answer. I wonder if a bug crept into the program during the optimisation.John_Spikowski wrote: ↑Sat Nov 09, 2019 2:34 amNo help. I tried that early on.

Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
The T(s)=100 calculation using cbmbasic on the Raspberry Pi 4B just finished.
Code: Select all
$ time cbmbasic PETAMI.BAS
T( 6683040 )= 100
real 1553m55.704s
user 1553m53.570s
sys 0m0.711s
If cbmbasic is really 1000 times faster than the original PET, that means it would have taken 3 years to perform the same calculation during the golden age of personal computing. Moreover, assuming the simple algorithm used in PETAMI.BAS scales as O(s^1.5), this further implies that the T(s)=200 computation would take
(85765680/6683040)^1.5=50
times longer. In other words, 50 days using cbmbasic or about 150 years using the original PET hardware. I suspect a different algorithm is needed.
When I went to report my findings to the testing and quality assurance department, the former developer of FidoBasic looked up and barked, 150 years can pass very quickly if you have a time machine. I confirmed that I did, but even then the calculation would take 50 days. There was silence, so I added, I think a better program is needed.
Some more time passed and this time the silence was broken by the sound of clicking, dragging and dropping. Fido had gone back to work and was trying to embed graphs made of ASCII art into the bubble comment boxes of Scratch.

Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
It seems that Fido was able to borrow the Tardis one more time. This time the tour included 5 of the nearest 10 interesting events in fourdimensional space time to the creation of the Unix operating system. Historic Unix R7 was running on a newly installed PDP11/70. Fortunately, I had suitable levelshifters so I could connect my Raspberry Pi to the DZ11 serial controller. After a little editing I obtained the output
in 3 minutes 45 seconds for the program
I did not compute T(s)=100 out of consideration for others. Anyway, thought I, it will be cheaper to run the longer calculation when I get home using hardware emulation. Note that the exact PDP11/70 I used was named Miss Piggy and is located at the Living Computers Museum in Seattle.

While it is fun to emulate a PET using the Pi, running software and operating systems designed for mainframe and minicomputers feels very liberating.
No. I ran my code on Miss Piggy remotely by logging in over the Internet.
Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
That's awesome. The last time I saw a DECwriter it was attached to a Data General Nova deep in an underground bunker. It was printing out any alarms that were generated by an entire cities traffic lights. They only took it out of service about 8 years ago when the washing machine sized hard drive started making noises like a concrete mixer and they thought it was perhaps time for an upgrade.

Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
Maybe I should start up Soviet built PDP11 compatible UKNC computer running RT11 operating system and try running the tatami code....
I also have access to most of the Soviet built highly modified ZXSpectrum clones. Those could also be used to run tatami code.

Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
The dog developer came bouncing through the door, tail wagging, fully recovered. What's up, I asked. Fido barked, the FidoBasic project has been reinstated! Not only did Scratch fail the latest ADA compliance tests but it is not suitable for literate programming. The only provision to receive full funding is to make a RISCV version and drop the use of irrational line numbers for nlevel meta programming. I looked at Fido, isn't meta programming one of the main features? It is, growled the dog, but I've decided to denote it using quotation marks like everyone else.ejolson wrote: ↑Sat Nov 09, 2019 5:08 amAfter a little editing I obtained the outputin 3 minutes 45 secondsCode: Select all

Conversation turned to remodeling the dog house by covering the floor with tatami carpets. In passing the lead developer of FidoBasic remarked, you know, it is not possible to have n tatamifree rectangles of size i*j with i<=j unless the area s has at least 2n different divisors. Using this observation I created the program limited.c which on the PDP11/70 resulted in

While the PDP11/70 was never a personal computer, as has been mentioned, the LSI11/03 was sold by Heathkit for exactly that purpose. At the same time, liberation of all people through computer literacy is only possible when all people can afford a computer. Fortunately, it is possible to emulate most minicomputers using a Raspberry Pi.

I'm amazed gcc compiles it on my PC without some arm twisting:
Code: Select all
$ gcc Wall O3 o limited limited.c limited.c: In function ‘doinit’: limited.c:51:9: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘exit’ [Wimplicitfunctiondeclaration] exit(1); ^~~~ limited.c:51:9: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of builtin function ‘exit’ limited.c:51:9: note: include ‘<stdlib.h>’ or provide a declaration of ‘exit’ limited.c:8:1: +#include <stdlib.h> limited.c:51:9: exit(1); ^~~~ limited.c:55:27: warning: ‘return’ with no value, in function returning nonvoid if(P[i]>smax/r+1) return; ^~~~~~ limited.c:41:13: note: declared here static void doinit(){ ^~~~~~ limited.c:59:5: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of builtin function ‘exit’ exit(2); ^~~~ limited.c:59:5: note: include ‘<stdlib.h>’ or provide a declaration of ‘exit’ limited.c: In function ‘Twork’: limited.c:132:1: warning: no return statement in function returning nonvoid [Wreturntype] } $ time ./limited T(30240)=20 real 0m0.019s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.016s
#define void int
and include stdlib.h then most of those warnings should go away. I'm currently running T(s)=100 using SIMH.
I wonder how large n should be to make a suitably absurd but possible challenge for today's computing hardware. Since this challenge now has a generous benefactor providing tatami carpets to the winners, it would appear we could increase the difficultly a bit.
Along different lines I hope our generous forum moderator made it home last night in spite of reading this thread while driving and all the farm machinery on the road. Do you think any of those tractors were hauling raspberries?

Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
I'll take that coupon and pickup some glasses.You had some typos, most obvious was the use of 1 instead of i at line 25, if I recall correctly..
Thanks for your time and help!

Re: Liberation through Computer Literacy
One of my early jobs after building the Heathkit PDP11 was working for Terak as a field service engineer. Mostly servicing universities and higher learning facilities.
I also owned S/N 6 of the IBM XT. I was running 8 Wyse terminals using Througbred Business BASIC OS.
