Easter eggs and some little-known functions of programs.

Пасхальные яйца и некоторые малоизвестные функции программ

"Easter Egg" (English Easter Egg, slangy easter eggs) is a kind of secret left in the game, film or software by the creators. The difference between the Easter egg in the game and the usual game secret is that its content, as a rule, does not fit into the overall concept, looks in the context implausibly, ridiculously, and is often an external reference. Easter eggs play the role of peculiar jokes for attentive players or spectators.

Most often, to "get" an Easter egg, a complex and / or non-standard set of actions should be performed, which makes it unlikely or virtually eliminates accidental detection.

All Easter eggs and functions in this section are checked.

Green is designated Easter eggs, blue - little-known standard functions, red - glitches and bugs developers.
