Quines are awesome, and even more is:
This is a Ruby program that generates Rust program that generates Scala program that generates …(through 128 languages in total)… REXX program that generates the original Ruby code again.
Julia is missing. Would make for an odd number, unless you have a candidate to throw out, for an even 128.
Also interesting is:
In computing, a polyglot is a computer program or script written in a valid form of multiple programming languages, which performs the same operations or output independent of the programming language used to compile or interpret it.
Generally polyglots are written in a combination of C (which allows redefinition of tokens with a preprocessor) and a scripting language such as Lisp, Perl or sh.
Polyglot markup is similar, but about markup language context.
Polyglot persistence is similar, but a...
e.g. there “A polyglot in 185 different languages”. [This however includes Julia (unspecified version) as language 17.]
I have a practical use for a polyglot if you can make one for Julia, plus Unix shell (probably bash) AND some Windows shell (I guess Powershell, or older cmd).
While the term "savant" generally refers to an individual with a natural and/or innate talent for a particular field, people diagnosed with savant syndrome are typically individuals with significant mental disabilities who demonstrate profound and prodigious capacities and/or abilities far in excess of what would be considered normal, occasionally including the capacity for languages. The condition is associated with an increased memory capacity, which would aid in the storage and retriev In 1991...
