"The Ugliest Program I Ever Wrote" - Guy Steele

This is a great talk. You’ll see the ugly program in the first minute, and then you’ll hear about how it works and what it does. It fits on a single punched card.

For another, unrelated, marvellous talk also by Steele, see “Growing a Language” - see if you can figure it out. No spoilers please!

Just in the process of watching, however, I was not aware of the amount of binary code that would fit on a single card!
