[comp] Can an AI "learn to program"?

What kind of work has been done on "goal seeking" AI that has as its goal, for example, to print the string "Hello World\n" to a file descriptor.

Its entire world exists of a directory, some knowledge about a programming language, and the ability to write and compile code and test for "is this nearer the goal?"

...not a new idea I am sure.
