    They took a good thing - what Thomas Street did, and botched it up - what Ondras Zarovi did, and botched it up even more, without even being original: http://www.vietthongtin.com/javaScri...TH/SPREAD2.HTM

    Using eval in 2k maybe was OK. Today, not so much, not even for show. It also lacks spreadsheet basic features, like absolute cell reference.

    At least they attributed their sources - it's a code golfing challenge, to see how small the code can be made while retaining a basic set of features.
    Sadly with all code golf challenges, the smaller things get the harder it is to use proper techniques.
