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 #100097: sparcocalc

by Jeremy
This calculator emulates the Sparco Handheld Calculator (SPR02196). Its interface consists of a graphic of the calculator. It accepts input in binary form. To enter a zero, click in either of the round, zero-shaped handles. To enter a one, click in the one-shaped blade. Output is displayed via a dialog box.
Sparcocalc is an alternate version of my "bincalc" program, demonstrating its versatility and portability.

sparcocalc requires gtkmm to build.
