Now, we all know most languages have very simple ways to "self-modify" code. However, what if you were to actually modify the code and edit parts of it...on disk?
Your goal is to make code that prints a number, then edits its own file to replace the number with the next one in the Fibonacci sequence like so:
$ ./program 1 $ ./program 1 $ ./program 2 $ ./program 3 $ ./program 5 [etc...]
- You may not store the number(s) "outside" of the code. No comments, no telling the script to exit, no EOF, etc.
- If your code works with any filename, subtract 2 from your byte amount and write
$BYTESNOW ($ORIGINALBYTES - 2)in your title. (Filenames are assumed to be within the range of any alphanumeric file path.)
- Your code must write the output to the file on it's own, without any external piping assistance.
- Your code can start from one or zero. It doesn't matter.
