Evil script replaces punctuation in your code with superficially similar symbols

Mimic implements a sick, sick idea floated on Twitter by Peter Ritchie: "Replace a semicolon (;) with a greek question mark (;) in your friend's C# code and watch them pull their hair out over the syntax error."

mimic provokes:

• fun

• frustration

• curiosity

• murderous rage

There are many more characters in the Unicode character set that look, to some extent or another, like others – homoglyphs. Mimic substitutes common ASCII characters for obscure homoglyphs.

Fun games to play with mimic:

• Pipe some source code through and see if you can find all of the problems

• Pipe someone else's source code through without telling them

• Be fired, and then killed

What arseholes. What magnificent arseholes.
