Filed under
Movies

CNET News.com's Nicole Girard shows you the command line to unlock a viewable ASCII version of the classic movie "Star Wars." So sit back, grab a tub of popcorn and enjoy the show.

More Details and Video.

The information provided

The information provided here is only something Star Wars enthusiasts, or computer programming mouse-potatoes would enjoy. When the reporter mentioned the drawbacks (no sound; incomplete movie) I thought to myself, "Why would I want to watch it then??!" But being the curious cat that I am, I followed the given instructions to see for myself what the fuss is all about. Surprisingly, I thought it was pretty interesting. I hope they complete the project soon. And Kudos to the creator(s). I salute your patience!
