About The Contest
The first ever Olympiad of Misguided Geeks contest at Worse Than Failure (or OMGWTF for short) is a new kind of programming contest. Readers are invited to be creative with devising a calculator with the craziest code they can write. One lucky and potentially insane winner will get either a brand new MacBook Pro or comparable Sony VAIO laptop.
Requirement #3: Test Cases
Make sure your calculator passes all of the following test cases before you submit it. To pass a test case, enter each character (excluding the space) from that test case's "Input" and verify that the "Display" value is displayed on the screen. In other words, “23 + 47 =” means entering 2, 3, +, 4, 7, and then =.
Note that these will be the only test cases run against your calculator. While we’ll probably play around with it to see what you’ve done, but the only testing requirement is that your calculator passes exactly these test cases (in this order). If it fails any of these, we’ll let you know by email and give you a chance to resubmit (so long as the deadline hasn’t passed). If it passes all of these, then congratulations, you’ve built a fully-functioning calculator so far as we’re concerned.
