    Welp the whole DNA replication thing is sort of a quine - except for peeps the object has to produce not itself as output but a merge of it's self w/ another object... :)

      Except that it's not. If nothing else ... DNA cheats.

    I'm in the same boat. But I love reading about stuff like this because it gives me something to look forward to as I get better at working with Perl.

    I mean, I'm 48, there's a chance I'll never get to the level of being able to do this kind of thing. But it is fun to think about achieving such facility. Goals're good. :^)
