    JavaScript Quine Contest

    This is a contest in writing a quine (a script that lists it's own source code), where you may win a GMail invite. Original contest posting at <webgraphics>

Winners in the cathegories First Posted Quine, Fastest Quine, Smallest Quine, and Most Elegant Quine will be given a GMail invite (unless they already have one, in which case they will have to do with the glory of having won the contest). Content rules will be as follows:
    • Since JavaScript doesn’t have a standard output, the return value of the last statement in the quine, which must be a string, will be considered the output.
    • The usage of the internal deparser at the top level of the quine is not allowed. This means for example using a wrapper function and explicitly or implicitly calling the toString or toSource methods on this function from within. (Meaning that I don’t want to see something like this:
      Code:
      (function quine(){return '('+quine+')();';})();
      )

      Of course, other usages of wrapper functions are allowed.
    • The quine must run in the newest version of at least two out of the four browsers IEW, Mozilla FireFox, Opera, Safari.
    • Submissions should be mailed to me, liorean at gmail dot com.
