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

lulz

*edit to conform

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

here are two One-Line-Quines for Console and MsgBox

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)))

      I'm trying to make one tray item delete another, but when I do this, all tray items that were created after the deleted item don't work as intended, as if their controlID's were all shifted down one value, and their corresponding tray items now (after deletion) run the code of the tray item before it. Am I missing something? Is there a better way to accomplish what I'm trying to do?
      #include <TrayConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> HotKeySet ( "{ESC}", "Abort" ) Opt ( "TrayMenuMode", 3 ) TraySetState($TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW) ; Show the tray menu. Global $aTray[8] ; Defines array to hold tray items. $aTray[0] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 1 (Name Test 5)" ) $aTray[1] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 2 (Delete Test 5)" ) $aTray[2] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 3 (Restore Test 5)" ) $aTray[3] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 4 (Check if Test 5 is blank or space)" ) $aTray[4] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 5 Delete Me" ) $aTray[5] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 6 (Check Test 5 Text)" ) $aTray[6] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 7 (Read Values)" ) $aTray[7] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 8 (Count Blanks)" ) While 1 Switch TrayGetMsg() Case $aTray[0] ; "Test 1" Change Test 5 Text. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[0] ) <> "" Then Global $TrayText = InputBox ( "Test", "Choose text for Test 5", "Test 5 Delete Me" ) TrayItemSetText ( $aTray[4], $TrayText) EndIf Case $aTray[1] ; "Test 2" Deletes "Test 5". If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[1] ) <> "" Then Global $TrayDeletedName = TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) TrayItemDelete ( $aTray[4] ) _ArrayInsert ( $aTray, 4 ) EndIf Case $aTray[2] ; "Test 3" Restores "Test 5". If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[2] ) <> "" Then $aTray[4] = TrayCreateItem ( $TrayDeletedName ) EndIf Case $aTray[3] ; "Test 4" Check if Test 5 value is blank, space, or filled. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[3] ) <> "" Then If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) = "" Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 is blank" ) ElseIf TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) = " " Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 is not blank (space)" ) Else MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 is assigned a value" ) EndIf EndIf Case $aTray[4] ; "Test 5" (Item to test for, during, and after deletion). If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) <> "" Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "I'm here!" ) EndIf Case $aTray[5] ; "Test 6" Displays Text from Test 5 item. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[5] ) <> "" Then $Test5Text = TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 Text: " & $Test5Text ) EndIf Case $aTray[6] ; "Test 7" Displays all item values. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[6] ) <> "" Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "$aTray[0]: " & $aTray[0] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[1]: " & $aTray[1] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[2]: " & $aTray[2] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[3]: " & $aTray[3] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[4]: " & $aTray[4] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[5]: " & $aTray[5] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[6]: " & $aTray[6] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[7]: " & $aTray[7] & @CRLF ) EndIf Case $aTray[7] ; "Test 8" Counts all blanks in tray values. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[7] ) <> "" Then Global $blankCount = _ArrayFindAll ( $aTray, "" ) If $blankCount = -1 Then If @error = 6 Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Error, No blanks present") EndIf Else MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "# of blanks: " & $blankCount ) EndIf EndIf EndSwitch WEnd Func Abort() Exit EndFunc Here is a test script I created to try to troubleshoot the problem on my own, with no luck. pay specific attention to "Test 2" ($aTray[1]), "Test 5" ($aTray[4]), and how every tray item after "Test 5" ($aTray[4]) behaves after deletion. Clicking "Test 2" will delete tray item "Test 5", after deletion every item runs the code of the tray item that was established before it (ex. "Test 3" and "Test 4" run their respective code, "Test 5" no longer exists, "Test 6" runs "Test 7", "Test 7" runs "Test 8"), and the last item ("Test 8" $aTray[7]) has no effect when the tray item is clicked. 

      I understand that deleting the tray item changes the controlID, but I don't know in what way it does, and therefore how I can fix it to be able to achieve what I want it to. I appreciate any help or guidance with this problem.

      To clarify, what I'm ultimately trying to do is create a 'while' loop with switch case functions that can exist without necessarily being linked to a tray item, so that I can add and delete them at liberty using the script's functions, without having to differentiate switch case functions with if functions (if $aTray[x] exists, then use this set of switch case functions, etc.). 

      Please, I am in pain. Water come school me again pls

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.26 contains 214 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor GUI, mouse and color GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) GUI numberbox controls for integer, real, binary and hexadecimal input logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      HI,

      I'm using the following:
      Autoit 3.3.14.5
      newly installed Beta 3.3.15.5
      SQlite version 3380000 aka 3.38.0
      I put sqlite3.dll and sqlite3_x64.dll in C:\Windows\System32 since many scripts depend on them.


      I extended the output of _SQLite_Startup()
      with:
      ConsoleWrite("@AutoItX64 " & @AutoItX64 & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("$sDll_Filename " & $sDll_Filename & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("_SQLite_LibVersion=" & _SQLite_LibVersion() & @CRLF)

      Also using the script from https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_SQLite_Startup.htm for testing.

       
      >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0


      Why doesn't it work in 32bit, despite me having the 32bit sqlite.dll? Autoit urges running scripts in 32bit mode and Scite starts scripts just in 32bit mode without the flag?
      With #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=Y it just works, both normal Autoit and beta!

      Hello Team, Greetings!
      Is there any way to run any 3rd party application silently in background without the GUI getting in the front ?
      I was implementing angry-ip scanner with autoit & wanted the angry-ip application to run in background quietly as I am copying its output to other file on completion. is there any way to achieve my query?
      Below is code I tried: 
      $range = "192.168.0.1 192.168.0.255" ShellExecuteWait("C:\Windows\DDM\ipscan.exe","-f:range "&$iprange&" -q -o C:\temp\ScanResults.csv","","open",@SW_HIDE) Thanks!
