The challenge: Write a script to print the alphabet, but you can't use any ASCII strings in your program. Unicode escape characters are allowed (if thats what you call them).

External libraries are allowed, as long as a link to the documentation is provided, and an online example if possible.

As this is , the answer with the shortest byte count will win!

  • \$\begingroup\$ It's kind of a tricky case, since almost all answers in that challenge also don't use strings. That means that most of the answers can be reused for this challenge. \$\endgroup\$

Neoscript, 27 bytes


Lambda returning the alphabet.


Silicon, 1 byte


A is preinitialized to the alphabet. Output is implicit.
