    const var s = new String("0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000");

    No I didn't. I didn't read that far into the article. :P

    All of those uses of var weren't quite convenient enough.

    var s = Enumerable.Repeat("0", 4096);
    

    This is a much more convenient use of var

    Needs more LINQ.

    {
        int z = (int)Math.Floor(megaBytes * 1024);
        return String.Join("", Enumerable.Repeat(new List<string> { "0" }, z).SelectMany(x => x));
    }
    
  • accalia (disco) in reply to Placeholder

    i like the typo there.

    Placeholder:
    megaBytes

    shouldn't that be kilobytes as you're only multiplying by 1024?

    TRWTF is that the original string seems to be 4081 bytes and not 4096 bytes?

    Amazing is that in such a short article Remy still manages to get 2 Html comments. Remy, was it zero number 1234 or 666? I couldn't quite be sure which..and of course I have to ask is that numbered from "000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000...."

  • Eldelshell (disco)

    Alice also gets a zero:

    string s = new String("0", 4096);
    
  • Colin_t_Hart (disco) in reply to Martin_Bene

    TRWTF is making a change like this likely to cause breakage when the new string is a different length than the old one...

    He did the Easter egg wrong, though, because he didn't make it hard enough to find. He should have deleted a zero, then copied one of the other zeros, pasting the copy in the wrong place, then dared people to find all three problems. That would have been a proper three Easter egg problem.

    That's boring though, a real master of mischief would put an uppercase 'O' in there.

    string s = "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000;
    

    (As no compiler would ever be able to detect that the arguments of the constructor are constants)

    Or, as 4096 is a power of 2, we can use

    var s = new String("0",(int)Math.Pow(2,0));
    for (var i = 0; i < Math.Log(4096, 2); i++) {
      s += s;
    };
    
    Placeholder:
    Needs more LINQ.
    return Range(0, n).AsEnumerable().Distinct().Aggregate<int, string, string>("", (string x, int y, string z) => x + z, (string x) => x.ToString());

    It was a Unary program that moves the pointer to the right and does nothing else. Okay then.

  • bryan986 (disco) in reply to Martin_Bene

    Only 4081 characters, yes. The number of bytes depends.

    Aaaagh! The capitalized string! Don't you people ever consider that someone might want to use aString class from a different namespace some day? All of you are writing awful unmaintainable code!

  • PWolff (disco)

    It just crossed my mind that magic numbers are evil™.

    So we should use something like this:

    const int stringLength4096 = 4096;
    
    string s = repeatedZeroString(stringLength4096);
    
    // ...
    
    string repeatedZeroString(int stringLength4096) {
      return Range(0, 4096).AsEnumerable().Distinct().Aggregate<int, string, string>("", (int x, string y) => y + '0', (string x) => x.ToString());
    }
    
  • hungrier (disco) in reply to PWolff
    PWolff:
    string repeatedZeroString(int **stringLength4096**) { return Range(0, **4096**).AsEnumerable().Distinct().Aggregate<int, string, string>("", (int x, string y) => y + '0', (string x) => x.ToString()); }

    I hope this was intentional.

  • accalia (disco) in reply to PWolff

    so it doesn't matter how many zeros you ask for repeatedZeroString() will always give you 4K.

    BRILLANT!

  • PWolff (disco) in reply to accalia

    Justified by that nobody would be so stupid to assign a constant with 4096 in its name anything else than 4096.

  • accalia (disco) in reply to PWolff
    hungrier:
    I hope this was intentional.
    const int stringLength4096 = 4096;
    
    string s = repeatedZeroString(stringLength4096);
    
    // ...
    
    string repeatedZeroString(int stringLength4096) {
      return Range(0, this.stringLength4096).AsEnumerable().Distinct().Aggregate&lt;int, string, string&gt;("", (int x, string y) =&gt; y + '0', (string x) =&gt; x.ToString());
    }
    

    is that better? :tropical_fish:

  • presidentsdaughter (disco)

    TRWTF is nobody being afraid WHY there is a 4K '0'-filled string in the first place...

  • accalia (disco) in reply to presidentsdaughter

    it's more we're afraid of the answer to that question.

  • Gaska (disco) in reply to presidentsdaughter

    I'm sure it makes sense in context.
