I'm not talking about,
Here's a part of a solution in CJam, and here's the other half in Javalanguage, you figure it out
I'm talking about,
my language is really simplistic and can't read more than a byte of stdin at a time, so here's a
bashhelper script which reads input, writes it to a known filename and then executes my langauge's interpreter which solves the task using said file
My instinct is that this is either a loophole of some sort, or will be considered simply a needlessly wordy
bash answer, because the interpreter command is essentially just another
coreutil, for all the rules care (even though that isn't the case).
I'm not asking whether the bytes in the helper script are counted; obviously, they are.
I can't tell if this is explicitly discouraged, and I don't plan on answering this way any time soon (I'll fix the language first).
