As most of you know, I have a fetish with writting obfuscate code, hence my calculator of doom. Anyway, a while back I talked to Ryan about perhaps hosting a obfuscaed code contest. He agreed that it would be a good idea and would perhaps actually becone a contest. Since then, nothing along those lines has happened, so I have taken initiative to initialize the contest.
To write the most obfuscated code that willdo something interesting. Not printing hello world or writting the alphabet, but something interesting. How about writing the lyrics to a song or making program that solves math equations? Entries do not need to be autonomous. User input is fine.
Entries must be in a single *.cpp fileObfuscate:
To make so confused or opaque as to be difficult to perceive or understand
Code will be judged through a poll once the contest is finished. Not the poll throught message boards though. Just say the top 3 obfuscate pieces of code and I will keep count. The person with the most votes wins!
Code must be compilable on MSVC++ 6.0. Upon recieving submissions, I will compile them to verify their integrity. If The compilation error is simple, I will fix it(i.e. a missing semi-colon), but other than that, the entry will be disqualified.
I havent decided on a date for the contests ending, but It will probably be once most people finish their entries. I am hoping for at least 10 entries. Upon completion of your entry, send it in as a single *.cpp file. Lets get some confusing code!
