If you are fascinated by small code in general, take a look at the videos at https://www.pouet.net/[^]. One extreme example: Oscar's Chair[^], an executable of 4092 bytes, encoding a video/sound of about two minutes.

Certainly, this code doesn't run on bare iron, but relies on Windows drawing and sound primitives. At runtime, it unpacks to a lot more than 4K of RAM - but the unpacking code fits in those 4092 bytes, along with everything that is specific to this movie of graphics and sound. It is really an impressing piece of work!

You can find several other 4K videos (executable size, not line resolution!) at www.pouet.net. I also like Skyline[^]. Clicking at "4k" near the top right on the pouët page takes you to a long list, where you also can select other sizes, platforms and categories. They are not all for Windows.

Religious freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make five.
