I created a program in a computer language called CLIPS that prints out the lyrics to the song "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall." Many other people did the same for other languages. The web site this existed on was gone as of October 2001, but I found it again in Dec 2003 at: You can also find other pages with a similar list by searching Google. Please note that this is an exercise in writing the same program in as many different languages as possible, and has nothing to do with alcohol. My code produces non-alcoholic digital beer. If you would like a copy of my code, you can ask me by e-mail.
