C# I put a random pixel in the middle, and then start putting random pixels in a neighborhood that most resembles them. Two modes are supported: with minimum selection, only one neighboring pixel is considered at a time; with average selection, all (1..8) are averaged. Minimum selection is somewhat noisy, average selection is of course more blurred, but ...

Vigil Finally a usecase for Vigil! def main(): raise Exception() Excerpt from the "language specification": It goes without saying that any function that throws an exception which isn't caught is wrong and must be punished. ... If an oath is broken, the offending function [...] will be duly punished. How? Simple: it will be ...

C Here's an oldie but goodie... #include <stdio.h> #define six 1+5 #define nine 8+1 int main() { printf("what do you get when you multiply six by nine?\n"); printf("%i x %i = %i\n", six, nine, six*nine); } This program contains 42 different ASCII characters.

JavaScript Shell This will make the language completely unusable. clear(this); Isn't it nice how JavaScript has such a nice function to destroy itself? This is pretty simple, the clear function completely empty an object. this refers to the global object clearing out everything including constructors and functions. Because this clears everything, doing ...

As to what is going on: I'm really just running rm! #! is called a shebang. And if you put one of these followed by a path to some ...

JavaScript So I went a little crazy with this. I did it between breaks from working on my GUI to track IP's using Visual Basic.

C++ Make sure you compile the following code in standard conforming mode (for example, for g++ use the -ansi flag): int main() { // why doesn't the following line give a type mismatch error??/ return "success!"; } How it works:

Ruby def method_missing(meth,*args) puts 'Banana' send(meth.next) end def also puts "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?" end ahem Demo Clears its throat, prints "Banana" 3070 times, and also puts "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?". This uses Ruby's ridiculous just-in-time method definition functionality to define every method that lies ...

Processing Update! 4096x4096 images! I've merged my second post into this one by combining the two programs together. A full collection of selected images can be found here, on Dropbox.

x86 binary, 4 bytes F0 0F C7 C8 Assumption: Must be run on a P5 Pentium CPU. The above instruction is commonly known as the F00F bug. It attempts to execute an invalid instruction, prefixed with lock. This freezes the CPU up completely (not a halt nor a reboot) and it doesn't even require root access.

C# Your task is to write a program for SAT that appears to execute in polynomial time. "Appears" is unnecessary. I can write a program that really does execute in polynomial time to solve SAT problems. This is quite straightforward in fact. MEGA BONUS: If you write a SAT-solver that actually executes in polynomial time, you get a million dollars! But ...

Java I decided to add another entry since this is completely different from my first one (which was more like an example).

Python w/ PIL This is based on a Newtonian Fractal, specifically for z → z5 - 1. Because there are five roots, and thus five convergence points, the available color space is split into five regions, based on Hue. The individual points are sorted first by number of iterations required to reach their convergence point, and then by distance to that point, with ...

Here it is in java. It is utter cheating, unacceptable and unfixable because it creates a MySQL database, insert the number there, do a select with an ORDER BY clause and outputs the numbers given by MySQL. In fact, it is MySQL who is doing the sorting, not the program. package sorter; import java.sql.Connection; import java.sql.DriverManager; import java....

Sometimes the community here doesn't like to help with homework. That's why you are getting so many joke answers. But I like to help. Here is a complete solution in 'C' (since I assume you want to learn "programming", not "scripting" with Java or Ruby). I've included many tips that I wish I had known when I was first learning #include <stdio.h> //...

Emmental ;#33! I know this isn't code golf, but the right tool for the job, you know... The user's code can be inserted after the !. Emmental is an interesting esolang which is based on rewriting the interpreter. Every single symbol (including the built-in ones) can be redefined as an arbitrary Emmental program. The language relies on this feature so ...
