Reference is an esolang invented by User:None1 that can read its source code, but not modify it.
|[i~j] (i,j are positive decimal integers)
|Output the i-th to the j-th characters of the source code
[3~5] prints the third to the fifth characters of the source code
\x prints x.
a prints a
When the parser sees a [, it tries to find the nearest ], if there is no nearest ] or the things between the two brackets do not follow the [i~j] format, the [ is treated as Other characters.
Files in Windows use CR+LF as newlines, to avoid this issue, an interpreter removes all CR characters in the source code read before interpreting it.
