Write a program that prints the first N numbers of the Fibonacci sequence. F0 = 0, F1 = 1 and Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2.

I made this page with a bit of MS-DOS nostalgia, showing a solution to the Fibonacci quiz in some of my earliest programming languages (if you’re curious, I have more Fibonacci implementations).

Click on a screenshot to see the solution:

• ``````10 PRINT "Enter N to calculate fibonacci"
20 INPUT N
30 PRINT "You entered: ", N
40 F0 = 0
50 F1 = 1
60 FOR I = 0 TO N
70 IF I = 0 THEN F = F0 ELSE IF I = 1 THEN F = F1 ELSE F = PREV1 + PREV2
80 PRINT "Fib of ", I, "IS", F
90 REM Shift values
100 PREV2 = PREV1
110 PREV1 = F
120 NEXT I
``````

From Wikipedia:

GW-BASIC is a dialect of the BASIC programming language developed by Microsoft from IBM BASICA.

[…]

All IF/THEN/ELSE conditional statements must be written on one line.

• ``````DECLARE FUNCTION Fib! (N!)
PRINT "Enter the number of fibonacci to calculate"
INPUT N
FOR I = 0 TO N
PRINT "Fibonacci of ", I, " is ", Fib(I)
NEXT

FUNCTION Fib (N)
IF N <= 1 THEN
Fib = N
ELSE
Fib = Fib(N - 1) + Fib(N - 2)
END IF
END FUNCTION

From Wikipedia:

QBasic, a short form of Quick Beginners All purpose Symbolic Instruction Code, is an integrated development environment (IDE) and interpreter for a variety of BASIC programming languages which are based on QuickBASIC

[…]

QBasic was intended as a replacement for GW-BASIC.

• ``````program Fibonacci;

function fib(n: Integer): Integer;
begin
if n <= 1 then
fib := n
else
fib := fib(n - 1) + fib(n - 2);

i, n: Integer;

Write('Enter the N to calculate the fibonacci ');
for i := 0 to n do
WriteLn('Fibonacci of ', i, ' is ', fib(i));

From Wikipedia:

Turbo Pascal is a software development system that includes a compiler and an integrated development environment (IDE) for the Pascal programming language running on CP/M, CP/M-86, and DOS. It was originally developed by Anders Hejlsberg at Borland, and was notable for its extremely fast compiling times. Turbo Pascal, and the later but similar Turbo C, made Borland a leader in PC-based development.

I used Turbo Pascal 6, which was released in 1990 (according to progopedia).
