Turing is a Pascal-like programming language developed in 1982 by Ric Holt and James Cordy, then of University of Toronto, Canada. Turing is a descendant of Euclid, Pascal and SP/k that features a clean syntax and precise machine-independent semantics.

Named after British computer scientist Alan Turing, Turing is used primarily as a teaching language at the high school and university level. Two other versions exist, Object-Oriented Turing and Turing Plus, a systems programming variant. In September 2001, "Object Oriented Turing" was renamed "Turing" and the original Turing was renamed "Classic Turing". Turing is no longer supported by Holt Software Associates in Toronto. Currently, Microsoft Windows is the only supported platform. Turing is widely used in high schools in Ontario as an introduction to programming.

On November 28, 2007, Turing, which was previously a commercial programming language, became freeware, available to download from the developer's website free of charge for personal, commercial, and educational use.

The makers of Turing, Holt Software Associates, have since ceased operations. It is unclear whether Turing is still in development, but there have been no new releases since November 25, 2007.

Personal Notes:
ported this because even though holt software has ceased all operations , Turing is still used to teach high school kids in my region on how to do basic programming .

  • Intial Public release
  • Includes app Preinstalled

This reminds me of vb dos...One of the bestest program out there. and Still it period.
You know I used this in school back in the day. I had old port here of version 3.x or something on the old site - I guess it never made it over when we switched sites - maybe I will throw it up for fun.

I had a bunch of games I made with it like pong, archery, scorched earth, minefield.

Ah good times in that class.

Well over a decade ago now.

There was an old Mac native port for classic environment I had too if I remember correctly.
Compsci.ca is at the moment the only online community with heavily dedicated to Turing (if you google 'Turing help' it's the first result). Would it be okay to host this on the website? A lot of students use Macs at home and can't use the Turing exe and they'd really benefit from having this available.
