Subject: A genuine ASCII stereogram! Here's an ASCII single image random dot stereogram for your enjoyment. To get the 3d effect, you need to diverge (unfocus) your eyes such that two adjacent letters in the same row come together. To help you focus, try to make the two capital O's at the top look like three. Once you've done that, the rest of the image should jump out of the screen at you!

Since there are far fewer letters than there are dot patterns, it seems to be very important to avoid repeated letters. g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g r r r r r r r r r r r r r r r r r r r e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e a a a a a a a a a a a a a t t t t t t t t t t t <<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>> d d d d d d d d d d d e e e e e e e e e e e e e p p p p p p p p p p p p p p p t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h To view, try and make a pair of the letter e's (from the lower row of e's) come together. This one is not as easy on the eyes as my earlier "near/far" one, but it has much more depth to it. Enjoy! The code I posted works with Turbo C, but to get it to work with unix, change the "random(92)" to something that gives a random number between 0 and 92... I changed mine to "random()%92" and it works... Here's the fixed code: #include main() { char m[100],s[80]; int j,i,e; for(e=0;e<5;printf("X%15s",""),e++); for(puts(""),scanf("%d\n",&j);gets(m),j>=0;puts(s),j--) for(e=s[79]=i=0;i<79;s[i++]=(e||i<16)?'!'+random()%92:s[i-16]) for(e=0;m[i-16]=='#'&&i<79&&i>15;e=1,s[i]=s[i++-15]); } and here's some sample output...
