Quine Relay

What this is

This is a Ruby program that generates
Scala program that generates
Scheme program that generates
...(through 100 languages in total)...
REXX program that generates
the original Ruby code again.

(If you want to see the old 50-language version, see 50 branch.)

Usage

Ubuntu

If you are using Ubuntu 15.10 "Wily Werewolf", you can perform the following steps.

1. Install all interpreters/compilers.

First, you have to type the following apt-get command to install all of them.

$ sudo apt-get install afnix algol68g aplus-fsf asymptote \
  ats-lang-anairiats bash bc bf bsdgames cduce clisp clojure1.6 cmake \
  coffeescript dc ecere-dev elixir emacs24 erlang f2c fp-compiler fsharp \
  g++ gambas3-script gap gauche gawk gcc gdc genius gforth gfortran ghc \
  ghostscript gnat gnu-smalltalk gnuplot gobjc golang gpt gri groff \
  groovy haxe icont iconx intercal iverilog jasmin-sable jq julia \
  libgd-dev libpng12-dev lisaac llvm lua5.3 make maxima mlton mono-devel \
  mono-mcs mono-vbnc nasm neko nickle nim ocaml octave open-cobol \
  openjdk-6-jdk pari-gp parrot perl php5-cli pike8.0 python r-base \
  ratfor regina-rexx rhino ruby2.1 scala scilab slsh spl-core swi-prolog \
  tcl ucblogo valac xsltproc yorick zoem

Then, build the bundled interpreters.

$ make -C vendor

2. Run each program on each interpreter/compiler.

  ./QR > QR.rexx
$ rexx ./QR.rexx > QR2.rb

You will see that QR.rb is the same as QR2.rb.

$ diff QR.rb QR2.rb

Alternatively, just type make.

$ make

Note: It may require huge memory to compile some files.

Arch Linux

Just install quine-relay-git from AUR and run quine-relay.
Report any problems as comments to the AUR package or to the respective packages, if one of the many compilers should have issues.

Other platforms

You may find instructions for other platforms in the wiki.

If you are not using these Linux distributions, please find your way yourself.
If you could do it, please let me know. Good luck.

Frequently asked questions

Q. Why?

A. Take your pick.

Q. How?

A. Good news: I published a book, "The world of obfuscated, esoteric, artistic programming".
It explains how to write a quine, an ascii-art quine, and a uroboros quine like this quine-relay.
You can buy my book on amazon.co.jp.

(It also contains my almost all (about forty) works, including
alphabet-only Ruby program,
radiation-hardened quine,
etc., and explains many techniques to write such programs.)

Bad news: It is written in Japanese.
I hope you could translate it to English <strike>and help me earn royalties</strike>.

Q. Language XXX is missing!

A. See the criteria for language inclusion in detail. (In short: please create a deb package and contribute it to Ubuntu.)

Q. Does it really work?

A.

Q. How long did it take you?

A. Do you try to cross the world line?

Q. The code does not fit into my display!

A. Here you go.

Q. How was the code generated?

A.

$ sudo apt-get install rake ruby-cairo ruby-rsvg2 ruby-gdk-pixbuf2 \
  optipng advancecomp ruby-chunky-png
$ cd src
$ rake2.0 clobber
