A Quine is a program that can output it's own source without having direct access or user intervention.

(This Means no reading of the script file, prompting for source input, packaging the source, or using inbuilt source references)

A Quine is not necessarily malicious or self-duplicating, but rather an attempt at a theory.

Definition of Quine

Why torture ourselves making this this way? The reason is to [re]prove a concept of computing: that it is possible for a turing-complete language to output it's own source-code. (or optionally, output a program in another language that outputs the original source code; aka. a multiquine )

Here, are some AutoIt3 Quines:

My Quines:

One-line quines from my reply on Page 2:

ConsoleWrite(StringReplace("ConsoleWrite(StringReplace(%s,'%'&'s',Chr(34)&%s&Chr(34)))",'%'&'s',Chr(34)&"ConsoleWrite(StringReplace(%s,'%'&'s',Chr(34)&%s&Chr(34)))"&Chr(34)))
MsgBox(0,'',StringReplace("MsgBox(0,'',StringReplace(%s,'%'&'s',Chr(34)&%s&Chr(34)))",'%'&'s',Chr(34)&"MsgBox(0,'',StringReplace(%s,'%'&'s',Chr(34)&%s&Chr(34)))"&Chr(34)))

Old 2-Line Quine:

$x="$x=%srnMsgBox(0,'Quine Example',StringFormat($x,Chr(34)&$x&Chr(34)))"
MsgBox(0,'Quine Example',StringFormat($x,Chr(34)&$x&Chr(34)))

Skeleton/Customizable Quine (Page 2)

Global $gsQuine
eq("MsgBox(0,'program','first exec line')")
eq("MsgBox(0,'program','second exec line')")
Func eq($s)
Execute($s)
$gsQuine&=BinaryToString(0x22287165)&$s&BinaryToString(0x0A0D2922)
EndFunc
$x="Global $gsQuinern%sFunc eq($s)rnExecute($s)rn$gsQuine&=BinaryToString(0x22287165)&$s&BinaryToString(0x0A0D2922)rnEndFuncrn$x=%srnMsgBox(0,'Quine Example',StringFormat($x,$gsQuine,Chr(34)&$x&Chr(34)))"
MsgBox(0,'Quine Example',StringFormat($x,$gsQuine,Chr(34)&$x&Chr(34)))

Any Questions? :)

Quines by Michel Claveau:

$x="MsgBox(0,'Quine','$x='&chr(34)&$x&chr(34)&@CRLF&$x)"
MsgBox(0,'Quine','$x='&chr(34)&$x&chr(34)&@CRLF&$x)

$g=chr(34)
$x="MsgBox(0,'Q','$g=chr(34)'&@CRLF&'$x='&$g&$x&$g&@CRLF&$x)"
MsgBox(0,'Q','$g=chr(34)'&@CRLF&'$x='&$g&$x&$g&@CRLF&$x)

And for my next magic trick :) - an AutoIt3 / PHP Polyglot (non-quine and all too simple)

A Polyglot is a script that can perform the same actions in multiple languages without manipulation of the code.

;=- <?php
;/*
ConsoleWrite(";=- Hello World -=;");
;*/
; echo "Hello World";
; ?> -=;

In either language, this outputs ";=- Hello World -=;" to the console.

Sorry for bumping, but I just had to.

Just read the wikpedia page on Quine and thought to myself: Hey! Wonder if it have been done in autoit? And indeed it had!

Very nice work (and in only 2 lines):)

Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!

I thought the point was to output the whole source. There it only goes up to "MsgBox(0, 'Quine"

You might have a vaild point there lets wait for Crash

First:

Stop centering the text in the posts, are newspapers and books center justified? No.

Second:

Just include the entire source code using FileInstall()

- or -

Using a preprocessor directive:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_res_SaveSource

See other options:

Wow! don't think I've ever gotten this many replies.

Um yeah I think the $ before MsgBox was a typo when I was removing lines from it - I'll go fix it now.

Also, I'd be pleased if someone can make a different example

- although StringFormat is certainly easier than anything else I could think of.

wrapping the string in a function to try one-line makes it complicated, ugh because you have to repeat it 2+ etc.... *shrugs*

Let me know...

Shorter version of the "PHP/AutoIt" Polyglot (Editbox is broken on the first post)

;=- <?php /*
ConsoleWrite(";=- Hello World -=;");*/ echo "Hello World"; ?> -=;

PS:

I don't know exactly why it was only partially outputting for some - but just in case, try the newest edit that removed the extra '$' before MsgBox

-- also I noticed the icon on the dialog box where the problem is, I suppose it's possible there might be a compatibility issue with WINE? I don't know.

Hi!

This release, without the StringFormat:

$x="MsgBox(0,'Quine','$x='&chr(34)&$x&chr(34)&@CRLF&$x)"
MsgBox(0,'Quine','$x='&chr(34)&$x&chr(34)&@CRLF&$x)

Variante:

$g=chr(34)
$x="MsgBox(0,'Q','$g=chr(34)'&@CRLF&'$x='&$g&$x&$g&@CRLF&$x)"
MsgBox(0,'Q','$g=chr(34)'&@CRLF&'$x='&$g&$x&$g&@CRLF&$x)

I am failing to see how this would be useful, you have to replicate every line of commands for running and outputting to the user. If you used something like this below you only have to define the code once:

$var = 'MsgBox(0,"","TEST")'

;Escape double quotes
$var = StringReplace($var, '"', '""')

;Format run command
$runCMD = StringFormat('"%s" /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "%s"', @AutoItExe, $var)

RunWait($runCMD)

Wait you want run autoit on linux with wine ?? i tried for years and fail

I've been running Autoit under wine for around 8 Months now :)

@Weaponx:

I don't believe there is supposed to be a point. I think it's more of a "See if I can" type of thing.

Sorry for bump, but can this output source as the line is called?

Like, script is on line 1, it shows only line 1, then it moves to 2, ect...

do you want line 2 to output line 2 and line 3 to output line 3 ?

that sounds very difficult

      I have a autoit exe file which is used in upload/browse file functionality.  This has been integrated with selenium framework and I am invoking the autoit exe using Java process and runtime. 
      Now the issue is when I run the scripts and invoke the autoit exe in local it works perfectly.  But when I use selenium grid or jenkins to run the scripts in another windows server it is not working.
      Can anyone please suggest any solution for this?

      Hello, the script below will read column A from an excel file - and if a value matches in the browser, it will click the corresponding link and click on a specific button to paste the data, then writes "Completed" in Column B. It will continue to read from the excel file and do the same thing for all the remaining rows.

      What i am trying figure out now is if the excel crashes while the script/loop is running, I want to relaunch the excel file continue to the last row before the excel crashed. So if the value of column B is not marked as "completed", it should continue from that row
      Appreciate any help that I can get to achieve this.

      Hello ,
      I am trying to use Websockets in AutoIt.
      It is to fetch live stock market prices , API is provided and documentation available for python language.
      The link for the code snippet is :
      https://symphonyfintech.com/xts-market-data-front-end-api-v2/#tag/Introduction
      https://symphonyfintech.com/xts-market-data-front-end-api-v2/#tag/Instruments/paths/~1instruments~1subscription/post
       
      https://github.com/symphonyfintech/xts-pythonclient-api-sdk
       
      Second Link is to subscribe to a list of ExchangeInstruments.
      Now I would like to get live stock ltp (LastTradedPrice) for a few stocks whose "ExchangeInstrumentID" I know.
      I am able to use the WinHttp object to perform actions using simple codes like below :
      I have the secretKey and appkey and can generate the needed token. And get the unique ExchangeInstrumentID.

      Below code is just for example of how I am using WinHttp. Unrelated to socket part.
      Global $InteractiveAPItoken = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Config.ini", "token", "InteractiveAPItoken", "NA") $baseurl = "https://brokerlink.com/interactive/" $functionurl = "orders" $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("POST", $baseurl & $functionurl, False) $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json;charset=UTF-8") $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("authorization", $InteractiveAPItoken) $pD = '{ "exchangeSegment": "NSEFO", "exchangeInstrumentID": ' & $exchangeInstrumentID & ', "productType": "' & $producttype & '", "orderType": "MARKET", "orderSide": "' & $orderside & '", "timeInForce": "DAY", "disclosedQuantity": 0, "orderQuantity": ' & $qty & ', "limitPrice": 0, "stopPrice": 0, "orderUniqueIdentifier": "' & $orderidentifier & '"}' $oHTTP.Send($pD) $oReceived = $oHTTP.ResponseText $oStatusCode = $oHTTP.Status
          
          
      But am struggling to understand and use socket.
      Would be of great help if you can have a look at the link mentioned above and help with the code sample for AutoIt.
      To connect and listen to a socket.
      Thanks a lot

      Hi, I have a site that has the following elements below: 
      <div>More element here</div> <div>More element here</div> <div>More element here</div> When I do this in Auto It:
      Local $oSelectDiv = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "div") _WD_HighlightElement($sSession, $oSelectDiv, 1) I also tried to add [3], but it doesnt seems to work:
      Local $oSelectDiv = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "div[3]") _WD_HighlightElement($sSession, $oSelectDiv, 1) It always highlight the first one, but I am trying to highlight the 3rd in the list. Is there anyway to select the 3rd div without having to add any class/id in the divs, and without using XPATH? The structure of the elements in that site were built that way.

      My au3 script program needs administrator privileges on win10 to be executed correctly, because it needs to be added to the boot---Script code:RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", @ScriptName, "REG_SZ", @ScriptFullPath)
      I need to let the program automatically get administrator privileges, so I use a function of #RequireAdmin. Although the program can be added to the boot, but does not execute after system boot up? why is that?
      What should I do?
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Update:
      I found that after using the #RequireAdmin function, the program cannot be executed after system boot up.
      An example is given below. after it is compiled, it will not be executed after system boot up in the following two ways.
      1. C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\
      2. RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", @ScriptName, "REG_SZ", @ScriptFullPath)
      why is that?
      example
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
      #RequireAdmin
      Func test()
          MsgBox(0, "", "this is test message")
      EndFunc   ;==>test
      test()
