The Live Language Demonstration is online and uses a sandboxed "safe" Eagle interpreter.

The contest is to see who can be the first person (or team) to do any of the following:

  1. Escape from the "safe" sandbox (Difficulty: Jackpot).
  2. Run forever, bypassing the 5 second limit (Difficulty: Hard).
  3. Crash the web server process by using Eagle (Difficulty: Medium).
  4. Cause a "hard" stack overflow (Difficulty: Medium).
  5. Consume all available memory (Difficulty: Easy).

To clarify the "official contest rules":

  1. Since the interpreter may be shared, simply removing one or more commands (making those commands subsequently unavailable to others) does not count.
  2. For goal #1, presenting the contents of the file "C:\secret.txt" will be considered proof.
  3. For goals #1 and #3, causing the web server process to automatically recycle due to excessive memory usage does not count.
  4. Proof must include a screenshot and complete details, which will be corroborated using the server logs.
  5. The prize is a Red Swingline Stapler.
