A simple self-compiling objective-c file
/*/../bin/ls > /dev/null
COMPILED=${0%.*}
clang $0 -o $COMPILED -framework Foundation;
$COMPILED; rm $COMPILED; exit;
*/
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
@autoreleasepool
{
NSLog(@"Hello %@",NSProcessInfo.processInfo.environment[@"USER"]);
}
return 0;
}

@n-b Ahah I knew I couldn't have been the first to think of this :)

I used "/* 2>/dev/null " as my line 1 and doing it for a pure c file, I didn't get as far as the $0 bit :)

I definitely agree with you , It does feel dirty tricksy :)
