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 #100175: OMG!OCRCAL
by Ivan Milyakov
OMG!OCRCAL has following near-to-unique features:
* main input mode is handwriting (or mousewriting? however); keypad provided for accessibility
* fully customizable (using almost human-readable format) character shapes used both for image recognition and for output
* calculation performed on character strings (no conversion to numbers) using good old school methods as I remember them a decade later
* the only graphics output function is LineTo, no buttons or menus used
