This programming language may be used to instruct a computer to perform a task.
If you know Ursa, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in Ursa.
Ursa is a simple programming language that I've been working on for awhile now. Its syntax is (at times) similar to Lisp, but instead of being list-based, it is "stream-based." Most in-built statements operate on types of data called streams. Streams are are variable-length arrays of data of a certain type.
The basic premise of ursa is to function as a very high-level abstraction layer between streams and "I/O devices." I/O devices are objects that represent locations that can be read and written using data streams; namely, the console, files, and network ports. Ursa greatly simplifies the implementation of programs that transfer data between these devices.
Ursa uses reverse polish notation for math and functions are simply seperated from their arguments by space characters. This makes implentation of Standard Ursa interpreters since this syntax is easier to write a parser for.
Raw File Transfer
This Ursa code opens a port on a remote server, then outputs the specified file to the port.
if (< (size args) 4)
out "usage: " args<0> " [server] [port] [file]" endl console
decl file f
decl port p
p.connect args<1> (int args<2>)
out (f.readall) p
Single-User Echo Server
# declare a serverport and a port to attach new connections to
declare serverport sp
declare port p
# declare a string to contain lines of input
declare string input
# attach the serverport to port 20000
# loop indefinitely, getting connections then echoing the data they send
set p (sp.getconn)
out "%msg: connection from " (p.addr) endl console
out "echo server " _version endl endl p
set input (in string p)
out input endl p
if (and (= input "") (not (p.isopen 1000)))
out "%msg: connection closed" endl console
