Definitions of SMOKING CLOVER
Sort: Oldest first
[ITS] A display hack originally due to Bill Gosper. Manyconvergent lines are drawn on a colour monitor in AOS mode(so that every pixel struck has its colour incremented). Thelines all have one endpoint in the middle of the screen; theother endpoints are spaced one pixel apart around theperimeter of a large square. The colour map is thenrepeatedly rotated. This results in a striking, rainbow-hued,shimmering four-leaf clover. Gosper joked about keeping ithidden from the FDA (the US's Food and Drug Administration)lest its hallucinogenic properties cause it to be banned.
