Print a number 100 times without using loop, recursion and macro expansion in C?

It is possible to solve this problem using loop or a recursion method. And we have already seen the solution using #define directive (Macro expansion) but what if all three are not allowed?
A simple solution is to write the number 100 times in cout statement. A better solution is to use concept of Concept of setjump and longjump in C.

// CPP program to print one 100 times.
#include <iostream>
#include <setjmp.h>
using namespace std;
jmp_buf buf;
int main()
    int x = 1;
    // Setup jump position using buf
    cout << "1"; // Prints 1
    if (x <= 100)
        // Jump to the point setup by setjmp
        longjmp(buf, 1);
    return 0;

Output :

 100 times 1.

The same can be written for C also.
