Talk:Munching squares

From Rosetta Code

I guess someone has to say it: what are the task specifications here? --Mwn3d 18:19, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

I dunno, but I guess that it's at least intended to be a task so I marked it as a draft. –Donal Fellows 15:55, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
This task looks pretty stable but the description still seems like it doesn't have enough to it. the "color table" part seems kind of confusing. Maybe there's a different way of saying the same thing that doesn't invalidate the other examples? If we could get that filled in then I think this task is ready to move up. --Mwn3d 13:10, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I think we need a wikipedia link for "color table", but other than that there are no issues. This task looks ready for promotion. Markhobley 07:30, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Also, this is very very similar to Sierpinski_triangle and Sierpinski_triangle/Graphical (xor method). Mind you it is very pretty too :) --Dgamey 13:07, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Move reason[edit]

This is munching squares, a well-known display hack that dates back to 1962. (It's mentioned in the Jargon File, and also HAKMEM items 146-148, dated 1972.) -- Erik Siers 22:28, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
