The animated gif of Dorian Grey

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike Stay on 2010 May 3

My friend Jas wrote a Perl module, Perl::Visualize, that makes Perl/Gif polyglots. He later adapted his technique to Javascript/Gif polyglots. Some guy generalized a quine to print out the source code of the program together with a comment containing the next frame in Conway’s Game of Life. So we have programs that can age themselves, as well as programs that double as pictures. The “aging” process can repeat. So someone make a JS/Gif polyglot quine that renders consecutive frames of Dorian Grey!
