Jonatan Andersson What label of beer is that?

>>  Brain said on 07/29/05 16:58:09

Brain This looks much better than the other bottled beer variant and has actually been done by hand and not by a module, kudos to the programmer :)

>>  Jon said on 08/13/05 13:18:20

Jon One big problem with this script is that this one says "1 bottles" while the other bottle one actually does it in proper english.

Welpe After all, this one shows only one bottle ;o)

Fernando I agree that this one is really cool but you can't discredit the author of the other version since he wrote the module as well!

kudos to both then!

RiV \b doesn't work if you output to a file. Also, it counts down from 100.

pdepmcp It prints a simply but incorrect version of the song.
Previous notes are correct and I have to add the the last row in the countdown should not be "You take one down pass it around, 0 bottles of beer on the wall." but "Take one down and pass it around, no more bottles of beer on the wall.".

It misses the last two verses as well, but almost all versions I saw do that.
