FizzBuzz/AWK

From Rosetta Code
FizzBuzz/AWK is part of FizzBuzz. You may find other members of FizzBuzz at Category:FizzBuzz.

regular if / else

This is the "traditional" approach: Loop, and modulo-check to see what to print.
Minor tweak: printf with no newline, and linebreaks only after each "FizzBuzz", to get a more compact output.

# usage: awk  -v n=38  -f FizzBuzz.awk
#
BEGIN {
if(!n) n=100
print "# FizzBuzz:"
 
for (ii=1; ii<=n; ii++)
if (ii % 15 == 0)
{print "FizzBuzz"}
else if (ii % 3 == 0)
{printf "Fizz "}
else if (ii % 5 == 0)
{printf "Buzz "}
else
{printf "%3d ", ii}
 
print "\n# Done."
}
Output:
# FizzBuzz:
  1   2 Fizz   4 Buzz Fizz   7   8 Fizz Buzz  11 Fizz  13  14 FizzBuzz
 16  17 Fizz  19 Buzz Fizz  22  23 Fizz Buzz  26 Fizz  28  29 FizzBuzz
 31  32 Fizz  34 Buzz Fizz  37  38 Fizz Buzz  41 Fizz  43  44 FizzBuzz
 46  47 Fizz  49 Buzz Fizz  52  53 Fizz Buzz  56 Fizz  58  59 FizzBuzz
 61  62 Fizz  64 Buzz Fizz  67  68 Fizz Buzz  71 Fizz  73  74 FizzBuzz
 76  77 Fizz  79 Buzz Fizz  82  83 Fizz Buzz  86 Fizz  88  89 FizzBuzz
 91  92 Fizz  94 Buzz Fizz  97  98 Fizz Buzz 
# Done.

When the output is presented like that, it is easy to see a pattern.

bash with echo

Using echo from the shell to generate the numbers as input.

Advantage: we need no loop inside the script.

Disadvantage: this needs a shell where echo can do this.

echo {1..100} | awk '
BEGIN {RS=" "}
$1 % 15 == 0 {print "FizzBuzz"; next}
$1 % 5 == 0 {printf "Buzz "; next}
$1 % 3 == 0 {printf "Fizz "; next}
{printf "%3d ",$1}
'

One-liner with seq

Like version 2, using bash with seq to generate the numbers as input.
Disadvantage: needs external command seq, i.e. this only works on unix. (Also, hard to read)

seq 100 | awk '$0=NR%15?NR%5?NR%3?$0:"Fizz":"Buzz":"FizzBuzz"'

No divisions, using counters

Division is one of the more expensive operations, so it is nice if we can avoid it.

All processing is done inside awk, using no division & no modulo.
Instead, a simple counter for each of the output-variants is used:

# usage: awk -v n=38  -f fizzbuzzNoDiv.awk
#
# FizzBuzz using no division & no modulo-operations:
BEGIN {
if(!n) n=100
print "# FizzBuzz:"
while (c1<n) {
c1++; c3++; c5++; cF++; x=sprintf("%3d ",c1)
if(c3>= 3) { c3=0; x="Fizz " }
if(c5>= 5) { c5=0; x="Buzz " }
if(cF>=15) { cF=0; x="FizzBuzz\n" }
printf(x)
}
print "\n# Done."
}

Same output as version 1.

No divisions, using pattern-string

Another solution that works without division / modulo.

Works with: gawk version 4.1.0
Works with: mawk version 1.3.3

This is inspired by the versions "Without Modulus" of Nimrod and Python,
using a precomputed (observed:) pattern to decide how to print each number.
But here, the pattern is represented as chars in a string, instead of bits in an integer.

# usage: awk  -v n=42  -f fizzbuzzRepeatPattern.awk
#
function prt(x,v) {
if(v==0) {printf("%3d ",x); return} # print number
printf fb[v] # else: print text
}
BEGIN {
if(!n) n=100
print "# FizzBuzz:"
 
pattern="003053003503006" # 0: print number, 3: print Fizz, etc.
split("1,2, Fizz,4, Buzz, FizzBuzz\n,", fb, ",")
 
while (i<n) {
i++; sel++;
prt(i, substr(pattern,sel,1) ); # select variant to use from the pattern
if( sel>=length(pattern) ) sel=0
}
print "\n# Done."
}

Same output as version 1.

Custom FizzBuzz

Example program 1

generated from General_FizzBuzz#AWK, for factors 2, 3, 5 using the words A, B, C.
The list of numbers is also generated (much like in version 2 and 3), and comes in as the file numbers.txt.

Input
31
2 A
3 B
5 C
# usage: awk  -f fizzbuzzCustom.awk  numbers.txt
#
BEGIN {print "# CustomFizzBuzz:"}
 
$1 % 2 == 0 {x = x "A"}
$1 % 3 == 0 {x = x "B"}
$1 % 5 == 0 {x = x "C"}
 
!x {print $1; next}
{print " ",x; x=""}
 
END {print "# Done."}
Output:
# CustomFizzBuzz:
1
  A
  B
  A
  C
  AB
7

  B
  AC

# Done.

Example program 2

Input
for the generator-program at General_FizzBuzz#AWK:
105
3 Fizz
5 Buzz
7 Baxx
BEGIN {print "# CustomFizzBuzz:"} 
 
$1 % 3 == 0 {x = x "Fizz"}
$1 % 5 == 0 {x = x "Buzz"}
$1 % 7 == 0 {x = x "Baxx"}
 
!x {print $1; next}
{print " ", x; x=""}
 
END {print "# Done."}
