;Task: Write a procedure which accepts as arguments another procedure and a positive integer.

The latter procedure is executed a number of times equal to the accepted integer.

procedure Repeat_Example is

procedure Repeat(P: access Procedure; Reps: Natural) is
begin
for I in 1 .. Reps loop
P.all; -- P points to a procedure, and P.all actually calls that procedure
end loop;
end Repeat;

procedure Hello is
begin
end Hello;

begin
Repeat(Hello'Access, 3); -- Hello'Access points to the procedure Hello
end Repeat_Example;

Output:

Hello! Hello! Hello!

Factor comes with the times word which does exactly this. For example,

Hello!

The implementation of times:

: times ( ... n quot: ( ... -- ... ) -- ... )
[ drop ] prepose each-integer ; inline

Forth

: times ( xt n -- )
0 ?do dup execute loop drop ;

Or, taking care to keep the data stack clean for the XT's use, as is often desired:

: times { xt n -- }
n 0 ?do xt execute loop ;

Or as a novel control structure, which is not demanded by this task but which is just as idiomatic in Forth as the XT-consuming alternatives above:

: times[  ]] 0 ?do [[ ; immediate compile-only
: ]times  postpone loop ;  immediate compile-only

Usage:

[: cr ." Hello" ;] 3 times

: 3-byes ( -- )  3 times[ cr ." Bye" ]times ;

jq

{{works with|jq|1.4}}

We first define "repeat" naively but in accordance with the task specification; we then define an optimized version that illustrates a general technique for taking advantage of jq's support for tail-call optimization (TCO).

Since jq is a purely functional language, repeat(f; n) is unlikely to be very useful so we define a similar filter, repeatedly(f; n), which generates n+1 terms: . (the input), f, f|f, ... ; that is, using conventional functional notation, it generates: x, f(x), f(f(x)), ...

'''Unoptimized version''':

def unoptimized_repeat(f; n):
if n <= 0 then empty
else f, repeat(f; n-1)
end;

'''Optimized for TCO''':

def repeat(f; n):
# state: [count, in]
def r:
if . >= n then empty else (. | f), (. += 1 | r) end;
[0, .] | r;

'''Variant''':

# If n is a non-negative integer,
# then emit a stream of (n + 1) terms: ., f, f|f, f|f|f, ...
def repeatedly(f; n):
# state: [count, in]
def r:
if . < 0 then empty
else ., ([. - 1, (. | f)] | r)
end;
[n, .] | r;

'''Examples''':

0 | [ repeat(.+1; 3) ]

produces: [1,1,1]

0 | repeatedly(.+1; 3)

produces: 0 1 2 3

Of course, we could have just written

example() xx 3;

or even <pre style="display:inline; padding:0.3em">(say rand) xx 3;

directly – the custom repeat subroutine is just here to satisfy the task description.

Notes on the [http://doc.perl6.org/language/operators#infix_xx xx] operator:

• Unlike other operators, it evaluates its left-hand-side argument lazily - that's why we can simply call f() there rather than passing it as a function object.
• The operator has a return value: A list consisting of the return values of the left-hand-side ''(and building lists is in fact what xx is usually used for)''.

General notes:

• The & sigil in the repeat subroutine signature restricts that parameter to types that implement the Callable role, and makes it available inside the repeat subroutine body as if it were a lexically scoped sub.
• The parentheses in the last line are necessary to disambiguate it as a call to our custom subroutine, rather than an attempt to use the built-in repeat { ... } while ... construct.

Infix notation

import scala.annotation.tailrec

object Repeat3 extends App {

implicit class UnitWithNtimes(f: => Unit) {
def *[A](n: Int): Unit = { // Symbol * used instead of literal method name
@tailrec
def loop(current: Int): Unit =

f
loop(current - 1)

print("ha") * 5 // * is the method, effective should be A.*(5)

Scheme

Scheme is mostly made up from expressions which return values. However some functions, such as display, return an unspecified value. The actual value returned varies depending on the Scheme implementation itself.

(import (scheme base)
(scheme write))

(define (repeat proc n)
(do ((i 0 (+ 1 i))
(res '() (cons (proc) res)))
((= i n) res)))

;; example returning an unspecified value
(display (repeat (lambda () (display "hi\n")) 4)) (newline)

;; example returning a number
(display (repeat (lambda () (+ 1 2)) 5)) (newline)

{{out}}

(Using chibi-scheme: returns # from display.)

hi
hi
hi
hi
(#<undef> #<undef> #<undef> #<undef>)
(3 3 3 3 3)

Sidef

func repeat(f, n) {
{ f() } * n;
}

func example {
say "Example";
}

repeat(example, 4);

Stata

function repeat(f,n) {
for (i=1; i<=n; i++) (*f)()
}

function hello() {
printf("Hello\n")
}

repeat(&hello(),3)

Swift

func repeat(n: Int, f: () -> ()) {
for _ in 0..<n {
f()
}
}

repeat(4) { println("Example") }

Tcl

The usual way of doing a repeat would be:

proc repeat {command count} {
for {set i 0} {\$i < \$count} {incr i} {
uplevel 1 \$command
}
}

proc example {} {puts "This is an example"}
repeat example 4

However, the time command can be used as long as the return value (the report on the timing information) is ignored.

It should be noted that the “command” can be an arbitrary script, not just a call to a procedure:

```tcl
repeat {puts "hello world"} 3
