with one line of code...

This is really cool, but you can write arbitrary long programs in one line, separating function calls by commas. There should be some other limitation differentiating between programs with 100 function calls from real one-liners.

I would write this gem like this:
```x = 2**10+0x200-(2*10**2-1)

VarSetCapacity( b, 44, 0)
NumPut(102|1<<8,b,  0, "s")
NumPut( &b+32,  b,  4)
NumPut(   1,    b, 33, "c")

cb:=RegisterCallback("stub")
NumPut(&b, NumGet(cb+28), 4)
DllCall("GlobalFree", "uint",cb)

NumPut(StrLen(x)+1, b, 34, "s")
NumPut(    &x,      b, 36)

MsgBox % stub()

stub(){
}```

laszlo, i disagree. even a simple ternary could be written in 5 lines

i think the competition is how much functions u can stuff into 16k chars (as much chars as autohotkey can handle in one line)

lets take this one (my attempt) for example:

```b64(mode, ByRef a, ByRef b, c=0, @="ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/",u="UChar",v="varsetcapacity",[="RegExReplace",]="RegExMatch")
{
return % (SubStr(mode,1,1)="d")?(((\$:=(StrLen(a:=%[%(a,"[^a-zA-Z0-9+/]"))*6//8))&&(\$//3+1!=c)&&(z:=(!c)? %v%(b,\$,32):1))? b64(mode,a,(b:=(NumPut((G:=((64*((64*((64*(%]%(@,SubStr(µ:=SubStr(a,++c*4-3,4),1,1))-1))+(%]%(@,SubStr(µ,2,1))-1)))+(StrLen(_:=SubStr(µ,3,1))? %]%(@,_)-1:0)))+(StrLen(_:=SubStr(µ,4,1))? %]%(@,_)-1:0)))>>16,b,(x:=c*3-3)+0,u)|NumPut(255&G>>8,b,x+1,u)|NumPut(255&G,b,x+2,u))? b:b),c):(z:=(x:=\$)(\$:=b)(b:=x))? \$:0):((\$:=%v%(a))&&(\$!=c)&&(l:=StrLen(t:=SubStr(a,++c*3-2,3))))? b64(mode,a,b:=b SubStr(@,(((G:=NumGet(t,0,u)*65536+((l>1)? NumGet(t,1,u)*256:0)+((l>2)? NumGet(t,2,u):0))>>18)&63)+1,1) SubStr(@,((G>>12)&63)+1,1) ((l>1)? SubStr(@,((G>>6)&63)+1,1):"=")((l>2)? SubStr(@,(G&63)+1,1):"="),c):%[%(b,"(.{72})","\$1`n")
}```

base64 encoding and decoding in one line can be used as this:

`MsgBox % b64("decode",encoded:=b64("encode",decoded:="Base64 encoding and decoding in One Line!",_TMP:=""),_TMP:="")`

for all those, who cannot believe its just one line, heres the download included with the example: https://ahknet.autoh...aphael/_b64.ahk

Ascii to hex

You could make it slightly shorter:
```AscToHex(str) {
Return str="" ? "":Chr((Asc(str)>>4)+48) Chr((x:=Asc(str)&15)+(x>9 ? 55:48)) AscToHex(SubStr(str,2))
}

MsgBox % AscToHex("Blah")```

This version shaves off another few characters:
```AscToHex(S) {
Return S="" ? "":Chr((*&S>>4)+48) Chr((x:=*&S&15)+48+(x>9)*7) AscToHex(SubStr(S,2))
}```

Would not make it then more sense to ask, what program can you write with 16K characters? There are a few tricks to make the code more compact (when you can avoid using old-style command syntax). You could even rename your variable “mode” to a single letter, saving a further handful of characters. Also, putting long default values for unused function parameters removes constant declarations from the function body.

Because of these tricks, I would suggest competing with the most useful/innovative/pretty function shorter than 100 characters, all together.

```Loop ; Joystick to 3-button mouse in one line. Supports everything a 3-button mouse can do.
Click % [color=red]DllCall("Sleep",Uint,10) + [/color]Round(50*(((GetKeyState("JoyX")-50)/50)**3)) " " Round(50*(((GetKeyState("JoyY")-50)/50)**3)) " " (((0 pj1)^(j1:=GetKeyState("Joy1"))) ? ((pj1:=j1) ? "Left Down" : "Left Up") : (((0 pj2)^(j2:=GetKeyState("Joy2"))) ? ((pj2:=j2) ? "Right Down" : "Right up") : (((0 pj3)^(j3:=GetKeyState("Joy3"))) ? ((pj3:=j3) ? "Middle Down" : "Middle up") : ("Left 0")))) " Rel"```

One loop, one command, 7 calls to built-in functions, 6 ternary ops, and that's it for my entry! And just for a kicker, I clicked the 'submit' button for this post using this script

edit: [11-2-08] added sleep for posterity

It works, but consumes 50% of my cpu power. You might want to add
SetBatchLines 0
before the loop, or some sleep inside.

My preference would have been to put the code on a timer with conditionals, but that would require at lease 4 more lines (#Persistent, SetTimer, Label, If ()), making the CPU-friendly version invalid for this contest.

btw: This is what my entry looks like at size 4:

Loop ; Joystick to 3-button mouse in one line. Supports everything a 3-button mouse can do.
Click % Round(50*(((GetKeyState("JoyX")-50)/50)**3)) " " Round(50*(((GetKeyState("JoyY")-50)/50)**3)) " " (((0 pj1)^(j1:=GetKeyState("Joy1"))) ? ((pj1:=j1) ? "Left Down" : "Left Up") : (((0 pj2)^(j2:=GetKeyState("Joy2"))) ? ((pj2:=j2) ? "Right Down" : "Right up") : (((0 pj3)^(j3:=GetKeyState("Joy3"))) ? ((pj3:=j3) ? "Middle Down" : "Middle up") : ("Left 0")))) " Rel"

MIT students were asked if they had ever hit their computers. A significant number of them replied that they had even kicked the damn thing. (You can always try to re-create your script or try to undelete the file.)

i dident delite the file, i removed the text to start over so undeliting it wont work
i used tree and a half houer creating it the first time and dont want to waste that kind of time agein to create a function i know wont wurk

Your codes is fascinating it reminds me of perl. How long did you spend writing this?
