# Fibonacci function or sequence

The Fibonacci sequence is a sequence of numbers, where every number in the sequence is the sum of the two numbers preceding it. The first two numbers in the sequence are both 1. Here are the first few terms:

1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 ...


Write the shortest code that either:

• Generates the Fibonacci sequence without end.

• Given n calculates the nth term of the sequence. (Either 1 or zero indexed)

You may use standard forms of input and output.

(I gave both options in case one is easier to do in your chosen language than the other.)

For the function that takes an n, a reasonably large return value (the largest Fibonacci number that fits your computer's normal word size, at a minimum) has to be supported.

# Cylon (Non-Competing), 12 bytes

The language is in development, Im just putting this up here.

An explanation:

1    ;pushes a 1 to the stack
:    ;duplicates the top of the stack
ø    ;reads a number from stdin, pushing it to the stack
Ì    ;non-pushing loop, doesn't push counter to the stack, but deletes it
[    ;start of function, to be pushed to the stack
:  ;duplicate top of stack
ì  ;rotate the stack, moving the copy to the back
+  ;replaces top two objects on the stack with their sum
Á  ;push the result to the shadowing stack (non-consuming)
]    ;end of function
)    ;switch to shadowed stack
r    ;standard library call, reverses a stack
;stack implicitly printed


# bc, 21

for(b=1;b=a+(a=b);)a


The trailing newline is significant.

Outputs the entire sequence. bc has arbitrary precision arithmetic, so this continues forever.

My take on this challenge. Didn't find this kind of an answer yet. I hope it's a valid one.

Print's n:th Fibonacci number. Functions by multiplying the string inside exec n times and then executing it as Python.

Edit: input() instead of int(raw_input())

• If I'm not mistaken, you don't need to the () around exec in Python 2. – Stephen Jul 21 '17 at 14:07
• @StepHen That seems to be true, thanks, down by 2 chars – SydB Jul 21 '17 at 14:11
• Oh, I almost forgot: this would be considered a snippet because it preassumes the value of n. Generally you must write either a full program that gets input, or a function. So, you would have to replace n with input(). See this meta post for more information. – Stephen Jul 21 '17 at 14:15

# PHP, 39 bytes

The part which does all the work is echo $a = -$a + $b +=$a, ' ';. Here it is expanded.

{


Calculate the new value for $b: the next term is the sum of the previous two. $b = $b +$a;


$a needs to be moved on one term as well. It is calculated by subtracting itself from the new value of $b.

    $a =$b - $a;  For byte-saving convenience, it is$a that is echoed each time—followed by a space!

    echo $a, ' '; }  • This can be 31 bytes since you don't need PHP's opening tag (you can run with php -r "code here" without opening tag) and you can use _ as separator instead of space: Try it online! – Night2 Sep 25 '19 at 9:42 # Klein, 2322 21 + 3 = 24 bytes (non-competing) Run with the 000 topology (1)\((@ ):?\1-+(:(+)$


## Explanation

When the program starts it executes (1) which will put a 1 under the input. It then deflects into the main loop.

The main loop is on the second line. It starts with the \ character. Unwrapped it looks like:

\1-+(:(+)$):?  This will redirect our pointer if the counter is zero or perform one iteration of the fibonacci sequence otherwise. Once the counter reaches zero we are deflected to the code ((@, this will hide the top two values (the counter and one of the fibonacci numbers) and terminate the program. # J-uby, 8 6 bytes :++2.*  In J-uby, + on a proc (or a symbol in this case, as symbols can be used as procs in J-uby), defines a recurrence relation. It takes a starter array, and then produces a function that takes n, and then applies itself to the starter array n times, pushing the result to the end and removing the first element. Naturally :+ + [0,1] is a recurrence relation that starts with elements 0, 1 and adds them together n times. 2.* is shorthand for [0,1] # C, 64 bytes a,x,y,z=1;main(){for(;;){a=y;y=z;z=a;x+=y;y=x;printf("%d ",x);}}  Try it online!

Abuses 7 registers, including the instruction pointer (for some predefines) To note why I used the IP instead of a constant, it's because the R16K1S60 has to use an extra word (two bytes) to encode a constant into an instruction.

Shortest way to produce [fib(0)..fib(n)] without trashing the stack (14B): {0 1q?+#RC!}RS  Explanation There's the concept of "Continuation" in Burlesque which basically means that you run a function on a stack without destroying the stack. Fibonacci is the perfect example use-case for what these continuations are good for. If you have a program like 1 1 add then this results in a stack of 2 because add destroys the data. If add were not to destroy the data the stack would look like 1 1 2 and if we just do 1 1 add add it would look like 1 1 2 3. So all we need to do to generate a Fibonacci sequence is to call add n-times without popping the arguments. A continuation takes a snapshot of the stack, runs the function, pops the result from the stack, reverts the stack to the snapshot and pushes the result of the function to it. C! is the Burlesque built-in for "run this continuation n-times". However, doing so would trash our stack (which is no problem if you just want to print out Fibonacci numbers). Otherwise we need to use the RS built-in which runs a function in a different stack environment. RS takes a value as an argument, creates an empty stack, pushes that value to it and then runs the given function on that stack and after the function has run it will collect that stack into a list and push that list to the main stack. #R rotates the stack because the stack layout will look like N 0 1 but we need that N because it's the argument for C! so we rotate the stack. q?+ is just shorthand for {?+} (q wraps the next token into a block). If you don't care about trashing the stack you just drop the RS: blsq ) 10 0 1q?+#R!C 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89  Shortest way to produce fib(n) as a reusable non stack-trashing piece of code I can think of is (17B): 0 1{Jx/?+}#RE!jvv  # Older Stuff There's dozens of ways to do that. These push the fibonacci numbers to the stack: blsq ) 0 1{#s2.+++}10E! blsq ) 0 1q?+10C!  However, the snippets above will also trash your stack. Alternatives for that are either: blsq ) 0 1{Jx/?+}10E!jvv  which just computes the 10th fibonacci number. Also by still using continuations you can let the whole thing run in a seperate stack environment like uhm so: blsq ) {10}{0 1q?+#RC!}rs {89 55 34 21 13 8 5 3 2 1 1 0} blsq ) 10{0 1q?+#RC!}RS {89 55 34 21 13 8 5 3 2 1 1 0}  Really depends on your needs. • This is code-golf, so please post the shortest solution you can find with its byte count. – lirtosiast Oct 22 '15 at 17:20 # Alchemist, 68 bytes y+_->y+a+b y+0_->z z+a->z+_ z+0a->x x+b->x+a x+0b->y+Out_a+Out_" "!y  Try it online!

CB0CA~ ^ 1 <  Outputs an unending sequence. Use the -u flag to get output in decimal. Try it online! Note: the current BitCycle interpreter doesn't play very well with infinite output. You have to halt the program (Ctrl-C) before it displays anything. On TIO, letting the program run until the 60-second timeout shows no output, either--you have to click the Run button (or hit Ctrl-Enter) again to halt it. ### Explanation This explanation assumes you're familiar with BitCycle. Conceptually, we store two numbers at a time, the smaller and the larger. At each step, we output the larger, set the new larger to be the larger plus the smaller, and set the new smaller to be the larger. We store and output the numbers in unary (using 1 bits), but we also need a separator (0 bit) after each number output. Our approach is to store the separator at the end of each number. When adding two numbers, we discard the separator from the first number added, and keep the separator from the second number added. In the code, the leftmost C collector holds the smaller number, while the rightmost C collector holds the larger. We're actually going to store everything negated, so the numbers are made of 0 bits and the separators are 1 bits. Thus, the leftmost C initially gets a single 1 (unary zero plus a separator bit) and the rightmost C gets 01 (unary one plus a separator bit). The C collectors open and dump their contents straight into the B and A collectors. Next, the A collector opens, holding the larger number. It goes through a couple of dupneg devices, with the following results: • A copy goes into the leftmost C collector, becoming the new smaller number. • A negated copy goes into the sink ! and is output. • A doubly-negated copy goes into the rightmost C collector, but the + ensures that it's only the 0 bits, not the trailing 1 separator. Finally, the B collector opens and dumps its contents into the rightmost C, adding the former smaller number to the former larger number to create the new larger number. The cycle repeats forever. ### Other versions Here's a modified version (still 21 bytes) that strips the separator off the smaller number (instead of the larger) before adding: 10>v ~! BA+BA~ ^ <  And here's an 18-byte version that starts at 0 instead of 1. (Thanks to Jo King for golfing it down from 21 bytes.) Here, we start with the "smaller" number at 1 and the "larger" number at 0, generating the extended Fibonacci sequence 1,0,1,1,2,3,... (Since the "larger" number is what we output, we don't see the first 1.)  1+ ~!

This guy's a whopper. Prints terms indefinitely with no separator. The bit on the left initializes the blank variable and x to one, and the bit on the right does the Fibonaccing. The loop condition (everything to the left below loop) prints both variables before checking the blank one for truthiness (it'll always be nonzero). The loop body updates first blank and then x, thus generating the next two terms for the condition to print. I can't quite figure out set. It doesn't quite follow the chain of execution, but it almost does, I think. I'll be looking at the Pyramid Scheme source in the next few days (and possibly extending the language); perhaps this will provide me with the insight required to golf some bytes off this monstrosity. # BitCycle, 17 16 bytes ~1~ + AB~/! ^ +/  Try it online! Outputs the 0 based sequence. This could be 14 bytes: ~1~+ AB~! ^ +/  Try it online! But it prints an extra 0 in front of the sequence, which takes a couple of bytes to fix... There's also a 17 byte solution: v0< AB~ ~ +\ ~ !  Try it online! Which I like because you can switch between 0-based and 1-based just by changing the 0 on the first line to a 1. For both solutions, the numbers are infinitely output is in unary 1 bits separated by 0 bits. The -u flag converts the unary numbers to decimal instead, but the TIO tends to cut off the outputting section sometimes, and the last number is always truncated too. There's a bit in the footer to prevent this. ### Explanation: Basically, these solutions only use a single pair of collectors and distinguishes between the two numbers by storing one as unary 1 bits and the other as unary 0 bits. This starts off with 1 being pushed to the collectors to initialise the sequence. ~ ~ Invert the whole stack AB~ This basically swaps the values of the two numbers Also duplicate a copy downwards and rightwards   Split the stream into zeroes and ones with the plus ! /!

Outputs the Fibonacci numbers separated by tabs starting from 1. This shows off the behaviour of variables in Cascade, in that the variables 1 and 0 aren't static in this program.

Unfolded, this looks something like:

     @

^ \

#  9 |
]    |
0 -   |
] 0  |
1 +   /
1 0 /

Try it online!

This initially branches twice, with the leftmost going down the tree until it sets ([) the variable 1 to the sum (+) of 1 and 0. Then it sets 0 to that value to the result of that minus 0. This has the effect of advancing one element in the Fibonacci sequence.For example, the values of repeated executions are:

0 1
1 1
1 2
2 3
3 5
5 8
8 13
...


Finally it prints the total result of that, which is the new value of 0. The next branch prints the tab separator (.9), and the final branch loops back around to the top of the program.

CAUTION: This attempts to print the whole Fibonacci sequence. It does not stop.

Pretty simple. Initialize a and b. Then a repeat loop which adds them to find the next number and print it. This loop will not stop, though eventually the overflow means it just prints NaN repeatedly.

Edit: saved 1 byte by switching to a=b=1 which required a different loop control mechanism to print the first few values, and then a different assignment location, etc.

#         // for as many times...
@0       //     ... as [value of register 0]...
+      //         ... increment the accumulator


I find it a bit hard to explain this further, so here's a rough chart of the accumulator and the two registers used during execution which will hopefully remove any confusion:

acc   reg[0]    reg[1] |
---------------------- |
1     <uninit>  0      | initialize; print acc("1")
1     0         1      | set reg[0] to reg[1]; set reg[1] to acc
1     0         1      | add reg[0] to acc; jump back and print acc ("1")
1     1         1      | set reg[0] to reg[1]; set reg[1] to acc
2     1         1      | add reg[0] to acc; jump back and print acc ("2")
2     1         2      | set reg[0] to reg[1]; set reg[1] to acc
3     1         2      | add reg[0] to acc; jump back and print acc ("3")
3     2         3      | set reg[0] to reg[1]; set reg[1] to acc
5     2         3      | add reg[0] to acc; jump back and print acc ("5")
5     3         5      | set reg[0] to reg[1]; set reg[1] to acc
8     3         5      | add reg[0] to acc; jump back and print acc ("8")


...and so forth and so on.

• How did you get to know Pinecone? For me it was because I wanted to learn how to make my own language – ophact Apr 21 at 16:14
• @ophact I was researching on creating Lexers, and I found an article on it, that's how i reached there :) – Wasif Apr 21 at 16:15

# COBOL (GNU), 170 bytes

I am surprised at the lack of COBOL answers on this site. Well, it is ancient after all.

This outputs the fibonacci sequence correctly up to 38 digits.

PROGRAM-ID.H.DATA DIVISION.LOCAL-STORAGE SECTION.
1 a PIC 9(38).
1 b PIC 9(38).
PROCEDURE DIVISION.G.COMPUTE a=0**b+b -a
ADD a TO b
DISPLAY b(38- FUNCTION LOG10(b):)GO G.


Try it online!

## Explanation

We just need two variables, a and b to compute the whole fibonacci sequence. Here is pseudocode of what this would look like:

a = 0
b = 1
loop {
a = b - a
b += a
print(a)
}


Translating the pseudocode above in COBOL is relatively short and simple. But we see that variables in COBOL are set to 0 by default, and having one of them set to a 1 is kind of (8 bytes) long, so we hack it out like so:

a = 0
b = 0
loop {
a = b - a + 0 ** b
b += a
print(b)
}


The 0 ** b ensures that a = 1 on the first iteration. From then on, the logic is the same as in our first pseudocode implementation (since 0 ** (any number greater than 0) = 0). The change from print(a) to print(b) is just to ensure that the numbers are outputted in the correct order.
