This code sample will render a spiral on your terminal when you compile and execute it. Very interesting indeed.

#include <sstream>
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
std::string rle =
"32 [email protected] 1n16 [email protected] [email protected] 1n13 [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] 1n10 [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] 1n7 [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] "

"16 1n22 [email protected] 1n";
int main()
	std::stringstream ss(rle);
	while (!ss.eof())
		int n = 0;
		while (ss.peek() >= '0' && ss.peek() <= '9')
		n = n * 10 + ss.get() - '0';
		char c = ss.get();
		while (0 < n--)
			std::cout << (c != 'n' ? c : 'n');
