    I'm rather proud of my Sieve of Eratosthenes and my matrix class (which can multiply matrices, find the inverse and determinant of ANY size matrices, and more to come), but I'd hardly consider either brilliant..

    Unfortunately, it's not 100% portable.

    WHAHAHAHAHAHA - and now I've got the source code!! It's ALL MINE!!!!
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );

    Simple,
    Clever: skillful or adroit in using the hands or body
    mentally quick and resourceful but often lacking in depth and soundness
    Brilliant: distinguished by unusual mental keenness or alertness
    very bright

    All my brilliant code is written in languages that haven't even been invented yet.. showing just how brilliant it is. I'd post it but I'm pretty sure that'd lead to some sort of tear in space-time which would annihilate us all, that and they characters used to type it aren't available in this primitive textbox.

    Hmm,
    Perfect timing.. I'm at the end of a DBMS for C application.
    It's 2104 lines. Wish within 2500 I can cover.

    It has recovery from crash and dfregmentation. With hours I can ready for any DB. Its 100% portable. Though I'm using for Linux.

    Needs little more review on recovery.

    Once my brilliant code was
    Code:
    void main()
    {
    int a = 10, b=5;
    printf("a=%d, b=%d\n", a, b);
    a +=b;
    b = a-b;
    a -=b;
    printf("a=%d, b=%d\n", a, b);
    }
    ohh.. another one, I was surprised after solving the Tower of Hanoi problem. Tough problem (in that time) but very short code.

    That is impressive.
