100 Line-of-Code Programming Language Competition

1st Annual 100 Line-of-Code Programming Language Competition Rules

So far one submission to contest, here is a review:

Bplus -

This project kicks lots of CENSORED. Thanks for setting the bar so high so that I don't waste any time trying to out-compete you in less than 100 lines of QB45 code. Your implementation language was well chosen, too - it would take hundreds of lines to simply get to the same starting place as you. Makes me think that if I enter this contest, I would have to jump right to Python or C++ to save myself the overheard.

I have not forgone my own personal entry into this contest yet, but I predict you'll be the winner if our judges have any neurological activity whatsoever.... AND if I don't join in :-)

Ah... bplus knows there are better coders than he that should be informed of the competition so that they may dust off some old esoteric brain intercourse efil project, tweak it a bit and enter. ;) I mean, to some people 100 lines of code is equivalent to unlimited!

Open to any language or flavor but IMO the judge is partial to GNU/Linux.

You might also want to check out the rest of the forum, members are given their own language boards.

Yes : I : think : so. : ;)

Is there a reason you didn't try the link?

BTW that forum just got a new Administrator, do you remember Bestof? He is going by figosdev. He is the one who started the contest.

I tried the link, immediately after I had read your post.

The limit is 255 characters X 100 lines = 25500 characters, that is a clear limit.

You can have more than 255 characters on a line but must average 255.0 or less per line.

 :) Since I won the contest I want to share my happiness with you here with my first (and only?) ever acceptance speech:

Quote
:) Hey an opportunity to give an acceptance speech!

Thanks to flukiluke for making this a contest so the judges had to work!
From their comments, I think they had to compare apples to oranges ;)

Thanks to Chris for providing a fun and powerful flavor of BASIC.

Thanks to Shian for his helpful example at SmallBASIC forum.

Thanks to figosdev who has led me down path of several adventures.

Thanks to Walter who welcomed us at his forum and his great enthusiasm to provide a sharing environment.

Thanks to all at forums where I have hung my pictures on the refrigerator door,
all who teach and learn with me, inspire, challenge and provide social support...
like Johnno with whom I have shared an imaginary cup of coffee almost daily!

Cybermonkey, what I said of Walter applies to you as well!

Perhaps this announcement made at SmallBASIC forum is clearer:
Quote
SmallBasic wins the First Annual CLOCPL Contest
"BTW, flukiluke takes the cake for originality is my vote!"
youd perhaps be interested in judging the contest next year. (not a joke.)
this forums own bplus won the contest this year:
Originality: 4 out of 5 = 12
Simplicity: 3 out of 5 = 6 (4 out of 5 was considered, but it was on the fence.)
Brevity: 3 out of 5 = 6
Features: 5 out of 5 = 10
Documentation: 5 out of 5 = 5
12 + 6 + 6 + 10 + 5 = 39:50
if the numbers seem weird (or just wrong,) theyre fully explained at the official results post: (bplus earned the victory with a first-year entry that perfectly demonstrates what the contest is about. luke was VERY CLOSE on his tail, and even in the "judges stands" it was unsure how it would go. it was basically a photo-finish, in scoring. we could definitely use more or new judges next year. that said, bplus was outstanding.)
I do think it was really close because flukiluke has much more skills than I. I was the one saying,
 "BTW, flukiluke takes the cake for originality is my vote!" because it was a really cool program!
