the question is right in the quote!Write a Program that prints its own source code!its called quine...this is used in programming contesttshere is an eg#includechar*i="\\#include",n='\n',q='"',*p="%s%cchar*i=%c%c%s%c,n='%cn',q='%c',*p=%c%c%s%c,*m=%c%c%s%c%c;%s%c",*m="int main(){return!printf(p,i+1,n,q,*i,i,q,*i,q,n,q,p,q,n,q,m,q,n,m,n);}";int main(){return!printf(p,i+1,n,q,*i,i,q,*i,q,n,q,p,q,n,q,m,q,n,m,n);}this is not my solution...it was on wiki!
