( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

SelfGOL looks very interesting:

The SelfGOL program can:

  • self-replicate by printing its own source code,
  • rewrite other Perl programs to allow them to self-replicate their own source code too,
  • detect and report the small number of Perl programs that are not rewritable in this way,
  • transform itself or other Perl programs into cellular automata of arbitrary size and play Conway's "Game of Life",
  • animate any short text as a cycling marquee banner.
SelfGOL accomplishes these feats in under 1000 bytes of standard Perl, without importing any modules, and without using a single if, unless, while, until, for, foreach, goto, next, last, redo, map, or grep.

Has any one been on this course?

Fancy a yourname@perl.me.uk? Just ask!!!

In reply to SelfGOL - I bet it is very obfuscated. by ghenry

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
