    i'm using djgpp which is an MS DOS port of gcc and friends (but of course works under windoze as well), the other two popular ones are mingw and cygwin, both for win32. all three are linked from http://gcc.gnu.org/install/binaries.html
    hello, internet!

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\Desktop>gcc -c dum.c -o dum.o
    dum.c: In function `r':
    dum.c:7: invalid lvalue in decrement
    dum.c:8: invalid lvalue in decrement
    As I said, it is a quick program I edited in about five minutes as an example, not guaranteed to be portable.

    thank you. that was exactly the word i was searching for.

    I think this one would just be for fun!
    yep, pretty much. there would definitely be different criteria for grading...and there would still be a winner, but it would all be in good fun.

    It would be more interesting to see a reasonably complicated program written in as few lines of code as possible :P

    error C2065: 'p' : undeclared identifier
    error C2065: 'i' : undeclared identifier
    error C2448: '<Unknown>' : function-style initializer appears to be a function definition
    fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found

    I've thought about it a bit, and I would absolutely love to obfuscate a simple problem. I think that sounds like tons of fun. Count me in for that contest. I just really wish there was some way to get the ball rolling here. We haven't had a contest for quite a while
