Make up your mind - is it Itflabtijtslwi or Itflabtijslwi? -- Smjg 19:31, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Is the input character-by-character, or are entire strings inputtable? KaiQ (talk) 21:58, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

It's character-by-character. Which is good, because otherwise it would have "code injection" problems like Thue has. --Ørjan (talk) 02:25, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Of course. So my unfinished text adventure is written in a half-broken wimpmode, then. KaiQ (talk) 23:09, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
How can I read in a whole string though? Specifically, I thought it would be trivial to solve this challenge using itflabtijtslwi but apparently not. Theonlygusti (talk) 15:16, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
Alas, I don't know a way to read in an arbitrary-length string without looping with a self-replicating program fragment, which is going to be verbose, about like the Cat program minus the whitespace. You'd also need to choose a way to quote the read-in string so it doesn't get confused with the program, but that's easy in comparison, at least if you can use a character guaranteed not to be in it. --Ørjan (talk) 16:58, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
