re: Challenge: Write a program that never stops VIEW POST


Javascript (empty statement evaluates to true so is effectively while(true)): for(;;);

Super-Evil Javascript DON'T RUN THIS LOL: for(;;)alert();

Python: while 1:0

Shell: yes
Funny story about yes is that in Unix it's actually just a blank file, which AT&T has the copywrite for o.0


for(;;); endless loop is nowadays marked as [drumroll] javascript.

Kill me please.


The original post was tagged with javascript and dev.to has a bias toward javascript which is why it was tagged with that.

What language would you have picked? Because most languages do not have empty statements evaluate to true, so the block would have had to be for(;1;); which is not as neat IMO
