    we could have people judge it... [more qualified judges than in FD imho... perhaps the mods would judge...] in various categories... we should make it as portable with a standard [basic] gfx api, stuff like that...

    Hmm....I got an idea for this...

    Point of clarity - When you say creatative, does that mean just about anything goes as long as the result is as per a common program's output?

    prelude first suggested this idea, and she named someone's recursive counting program as an example.

    ie:
    Code:
    int main () { int x; x = count(6); }
    int count (int x) {
      if (x == 0) return 1;
      else { printf("%d",x); return x-1; }
    
    
    }
    hmm... that's not as elegant as i would like
    but do you see my point? perhaps prelude can venture over and clarify things...
