What are quines?

:quine: /kwi:n/ /n./ [from the name of the logician Willard
van Orman Quine, via Douglas Hofstadter] A program that
generates a copy of its own source text as its complete
output. Devising the shortest possible quine in some given
programming language is a common hackish amusement.
