I don’t have the time to participate in every thread but I see my name
mentioned here. I would suppose it used a process very similar to the one
in which it can review and correct itself in ordinary text when asked. I’ve
seen it do so a number of times, and in fact it will review its output even
when asking only indirectly.  I saw it do this when I was testing its
“sense of humor” the other day.

That it can write in various languages including various computer languages
and translate between them and review and correct itself is all very
amazing, but my doubts are not about the power and intelligence of GPT-4.
It’s very cool and impressive, but so was my first Texas Instruments hand
calculator in the 70s.
