Exact output expected : ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

APL, 2 chars

⎕A

It's a constant string with the uppercase letters from A to Z

BASH 21 chars

echo {A..Z}|tr -d " "

Output:

~$ echo {A..Z}|tr -d " "
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

  • \$\begingroup\$ Sure, but the Output has to be exactly in the form provided. The answer you linked to is in lowercase with spaces. But nevertheless thank you for pointing me there :) \$\endgroup\$ – german_guy Feb 5 '14 at 12:39

    \$\begingroup\$ Interesting. printf %s {A..Z} gives me uppercase letters without any space. \$\endgroup\$ – manatwork Feb 5 '14 at 12:41
  • \$\begingroup\$ Hmmm, true. Maybe you could then just submit this as an answer \$\endgroup\$ – german_guy Feb 5 '14 at 12:43

Ruby 2.0.0, bytesize: 19:

=> p([*'A'..'Z'].join)
=> "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"

update. this produce without quotes:

=> ruby -e '$><<[*?A..?Z].join'
=> ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
\$\endgroup\$
  • \$\begingroup\$ You can use ?A and ?Z instead of 'A' and 'Z'. And you can use *'' instead of .join. And the parenthesis is not necessary there. Sadly this outputs the alphabet between double quotes. \$\endgroup\$ – manatwork Feb 5 '14 at 12:44

Delphi

52 bytes

var i:int16;begin for i:=65to 90do write(chr(i))end.

45 bytes

begin write('ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ');end.

  • \$\begingroup\$ You have to post a functional piece of code, including declarations and any other stuff required by the language. \$\endgroup\$ – manatwork Feb 5 '14 at 13:01
  • \$\begingroup\$ Edited it, I thought you just needed the required code to display it... my bad \$\endgroup\$ – Teun Pronk Feb 5 '14 at 13:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ Actually the program X; is not necessary and in this case byte is enough. Not mentioning that the variable declaration in the second version is pointless. \$\endgroup\$ – manatwork Feb 5 '14 at 13:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ sighs could get it shorter anyhow, just had something coming up all of a sudden, I will edit it soon.. \$\endgroup\$ – Teun Pronk Feb 5 '14 at 13:30
