Opera Software As should be common knowledge by now, Apple is very restrictive and sometimes quite arbitrary in managing its App Store. One thing is clear, though: fat chance there's going to be an alternative browser in the App Store (i.e., one that doesn't use WebKit). Mozilla didn't even bother to submit Fennec, but Opera is going head-to-head with Apple: the Norwegian browser maker has announced Opera Mini for the iPhone, but has not yet submitted it for approval.

Quoting the developer agreement:

"No interpreted code may be downloaded and used in an Application except for code that is interpreted and run by Apple's Published APIs and built-in interpreter(s)."


But where do we draw the line between data and code? As soon as your code does an "if" on some data then you're interpreting the data, and that's where we can start calling it code. Or does the data need to contain ampersands and brackets to be considered code?

Also, what if you write an interpreter running on Apple's js interpreter? Like http://joeganley.com/code/jslisp.html .I guess this case is not ambiguous, as it is run by Apple's interpreter.
