I had thought to look at it a little longer before recommending
anything. I found several versions, and some of it is unfortunately
incomplete or scrambled (files in wrong directories, etc.). I thought I
might put together a package which actually works and then e-mail you a

working code.

char *p="char *p=%c%s%c;main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}";main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}
