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 #100084: Calc a la WTF

by Bertho Stultiens
The basics of the GUI is standard GTK stuff. The calculator is a single function machine that validates the input and generates the output through table lookup. My guess is that at least some of the worst constructs of C are represented. If you need any help on figuring it out you should use C a couple of years on small dedicated systems talking to hardware :-)

Hint: look at manual page rand(3) or POSIX 1003.1-2003 and try to locate the constants in the table and the application of the function in the code. Then you only need to decipher the table.
