in reply to How I Learned About Quines

Mostly unrelated, but I'd like to share the story with you nonetheless:

The other day I discussed quine zip archives with friends shortly before I went to bed. Then I dreamt that my sister made me a belated Christmas present, which consisted of a book (Flemish for beginners :-) and a model of a quine building.

In my dream that was a tower that was open at one side, and if you looked into the cupola you saw another building, which in turn contained the tower again - in full size. I was very happy about such a geeky present.

When I gradually woke up I realized more and more that such a thing can't really exist in our 3D real world, and was a bit disappointed. Still a rather nice and geeky dream :-)

[Tanktalus]: LanX: yes :) I haven't tried java, but I have this match working in its bastard cousin, C# :) I just thought perl's unicode support would get me there :)
[LanX]: I have my doubts, IMHO its a workaround if the glyph is missing
[LanX]: (they are pronounced differently)
[choroba]: perl -Mutf8 -Mfeature=fc -wE 'say fc "straße" eq fc "strasse"'
[choroba]: returns 1 for me
[choroba]: are they?
[LanX]: strict rules : the a is long in "straße" and short in "strasse"
[choroba]: So the "a" is different, not the "s" ;-)
[LanX]: people knowing that it's a workaround will pronounce it right
[LanX]: well
