Best one liner

Jan Stein

Judges' comments:

NOTE: to avoid problems with news and mail, the single line was split into 3 lines. Join all lines into a single line to recreate the original file.

Compile and link to a filename called ‘a.out’. Try the program with the following argument:

a.out ^N^N

(^N is ASCII control-N). One some machines, ^ML is needed to get it to output cleanly. Your system may require another set of characters. In time, you will figure out what it does. :-)
