It has no use, it just self replicates.

Not all programs have to have a use. Sometimes you make a program to learn

Mmmm, the file writes itself to another file, but it isn't technically a Quine because it should:

  • Not take advantage of file operations
  • Write itself to the screen

How would it duplicate its self, if it only outputs its self

@hg0428
It duplicates itself to the output.

cool. Can you make a program that reads ascii art and prints it without reading it from a text file? (Hint:
use """ """ strings for the art so that the backslashes are not getting of the way.

You should create a tutorial on your language. Oh, maybe try creating a library management system.

I made the Quine program and it works. The quine program works, it lags so much that it will not stop running. Repl.it keeps crashing now. Here it is: https://repl.it/talk/share/Self-duplicating-program-Take-up-all-your-computers-space/33522
