Attempt at translating a piece of C code to Lojban

<syntaxhighlight lang="c"> char* str_fill(char string[], char filling, uint_t count) {

  if (string) { 
     if (!count) while(string[count]) count++; 
     string[count] = '\0'; 
     while (count--) string[count] = filling; 
  } 
  return string; 

} </syntaxhighlight>

English translation:

Function str_fill returning char pointer, taking parameters:

   'string', of type char array; 'filling', of type char; 'count', of type uint_t. 

Variable list: empty. Instruction list:

   if 'string' is not equal to 0: 
   >   if 'count' is equal to 0: 
   >   >   as long as the offset number 'count' of the array 'string' is not equal to 0: 
   >   >   >   we add 1 to 'count' 
   >   we set the offset number 'count' of the array 'string' to 0 
   >   as long as 'count' is not equal to 0: 
   >   >   we substract 1 from 'count' 
   >   >   we copy 'filling' into the offset number 'count' of the array 'string' 
   we return to the calling function giving the value 'string' 

End of function.

Lojban translation (to be improved)
