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.



Entry #100064: ChickenCalc

by Chicken Little
This calculator is text based, all calculations are done in "long hand". With additions its "Add the two digits; carry the one" etc. Subtraction is similiar. Multiplication is achieved by adding the first number to itself the specified number of times. Division is even worse, subtracting the denominator from the numerator until the numerator is less then the denominator, and counting the number of subtractions needed.

Because of the requirements presented, the ChickenCalc only works with positive integers.

ps. I am resubmitting this entry, I want it to replace my previous submission. Tha
