Hi Juan,

You need to be more explicit in what you're trying to achieve. What is the purpose?

For a language to be able to produce code for other languages, it needs only I/O string capabilities, e.g., all the programming languages today.

You can take a look at self-replication, in particular quine programs:

For example using a DOM representation of an Octave file maybe a good
option. For that python etree may come handy (or boost in C++, but I
wouldn't start there).
