  A computer program that wrote other computer programs.
Sounds interesting. Can you share more details about it (if possible)?

I was writing C++ way back in the day, and my friend told me about a guy who was so smart, "he could write programs that wrote programs for himself." I was shocked. The light bulb went on big time.

It's called metaprogramming.

Err ... Okay. If he meant that, I read too much in to it and was thinking something at a completely different level.
