FizzBuzz in CF

Couldn't help myself - FizzBuzz is strangely addictive- kind of like Twitter for people with no friends :-> Here is a simple but ugly ColdFusion implementation . . .

<cfset Count = 1>
<cfset FizzCount = 5>
<cfset BuzzCount = 3>
<cfset TotalCount = 100>
<cfloop condition="#Count# LTE #TotalCount#">
   <cfif (NOT (Count MOD FizzCount)) AND (NOT (Count MOD BuzzCount))>
   <cfelseif NOT (Count MOD FizzCount)>
   <cfelseif NOT (Count MOD BuzzCount)>
   <cfoutput><br /></cfoutput>
<cfset Count = Count + 1>


Where are the Unit tests?

Will this be included in Lightwire?

Ask Paul Kenney about the unit tests. I heard a rumor he was going to use FizzBuzz as one of the real world samples he'll be adding to the documentation for cfcunit.

As for LightWire, I am afraid not. There is just too much code in FizzBuzz so it doesn't fit with the minimalist LightWire approach. We've already bloated up to two core files plus a config. If I start adding FizzBuzzs, pretty soon you'll need to buy an extra hard drive to download it :->

Now hear this. There will be no FizzBuzz samples included with cfcUnit. They will not be part of the core framework. Now as a thrid party extension...

Well, maybe you could fit it in the test runner framework? I hear you have more room for extras there :->

The current cfweekly quiz is a variant of FizzBuzz... maybe you should submit your entry? :)

Not until I get the unit tests done! Still at least I have an excuse with the site being down :->

I knew it wouldn't be long until /someone/ did it. I thought about it, but had to pry myself away =)

And regarding LightWire, I think it would be so much cooler if for every 3rd object it instantiated it instead printed out "Fizz", every 5th "Buzz", and ...

I like it! A temperamental DI engine. Perhaps it could even stop working on certain days of the month or on the Monday after Superbowl Sunday?!

+1 on taking the day off the day after Superbowl Sunday. DI on that Sunday stands for Drunk and Incapable... so he'll need a day off to recover, naturally.
