There's a lot of questions that result in code that refers to itself. Typically these questions get assigned the quine tag, though it's not quite applicable in some cases.
I propose a new tag self-referential, which is applied to questions where the answers in someway refer to their characteristics, such as length or characters. While there's some overlap with quine, I believe this can be reconciled by having quine refer to challenges that have to output or generates versions of themselves, such as permutations, sections, or backwards.
- Output your score!
- Create output twice the length of the code and other variants
- What is the smallest positive base 10 integer that can be printed by a program shorter (in characters) than itself?
