Trivial dangerous program (if anyone is foolish enough to run this, then don't blame me, it's all in the title).

Well Eric

I'v put the lines in a file called

open OUTF,">";
print OUTF "open OUT , \">new.htm\";\nprint OUT \"<html><body>art is made here</body></html>\"\;";
close OUTF;

than I ran ./

and it produced a file (like the code is telling to do) new.htm in which is stated that art is produced in there.
it also creates and then uncreates an intermediate file called, which is used as a kind of birthgiving mechanism.

But , it still does not gives me a sensation that there is something exciting or deep meaning relted going on as the title of your code ("trivial, generative, murderous program") suggests

Or do you mean to say that that is commiting suicide after giving birth to new.htm, in that case is should be named parenticide and not infanticide.

Again correct me if I drawing the wrong conclusions.

In case I missed something please explain.

Hi Eric

I do not think 'we shouldnt do this anymore'

I 'd rather think 'we have to do it in a more aesthecical and or dialectical way'

I do appreciate your efforts.
