99 Bottles of Beer in Factor.

A naïve implementation from someone who is just beginning to (re)learn the language and doesn't want to (nor can) show off the flashy features, like so many other examples of 99 Bottles of Beer.

USING: combinators io kernel make math math.parser sequences ;
IN: 99bottles

: bottles ( n -- str )
{
{ 0 [ "no more bottles" ] }
{ 1 [ "1 bottle" ] }
[ number>string " bottles" append ]
} case ;

: verse-0 ( n -- )
drop
"No more bottles of beer on the wall, no more bottles of beer.
Go to the store and buy some more, 99 bottles of beer on the wall."
print ;
