Barszcz C recipe
Barszcz C recipe draws attention to the parallel between programming and recipes in a cookbook as a set of instructions to follow. Algorithms, much like cooking recipes, provide a (computational) method; a set of defined formal procedures to be performed in order to accomplish a task in a finite number of steps. The excerpt of source code selected for the featured display is from a longer program written by Jaromil (in 2006) that expresses Barszcz soup recipe in the programming language C (string based cooking).
Microcodes by Pall Thayer
Microcodes are very small code-based artworks. Each one is a fully contained work of art. The conceptual meaning of each piece is revealed through a combination of the title, the code and the results of running them on a computer. As works of art these are the creative work of Pall Thayer. As programs they may be copied, distributed, modified and used under the terms of the GNU General Public License v.3 or (at your option) any later version.
Hello World!
A 'Hello World' program is usually the first computer program that people use when learning a programming language. It simply prints 'Hello World!' on a display device and is typically one of the simplest programs possible in any computer language. 'The Hello World Collection' compiled by Wolfram Roesler (with help from many people around the world) includes 421 Hello World programs in many more-or-less well known programming languages, plus 63 human languages (http://roesler-ac.de/wolfram/hello.htm) [in March 2009]. The display aims to highlight how the combination of human and machine languages demonstrate a multilingual machinic 'confusion of tongues'.
