dadadodo - exterminate all rational thought
] [ input-files
is a program that analyses texts for Markov chains of word
probabilities and then generates random sentences based on those
probabilities. Sometimes these sentences are nonsense, but sometimes they cut
right through to the heart of the matter and reveal hidden meanings.
accepts the following options:
- -c, -count n
- Generate n sentences.
- -h, -help
- Show summary of options and exit.
- Output HTML instead of plain text.
- -l, -load file
- Load compiled data from file (‘-’ for
- -o, -output file
- Save compiled data in file (‘-’ for
- -p, -pause s
- Delay s seconds between paragraphs.
- -w, -columns columns
- Format output for a device columns character cells
in width. If not specified, the value of the environment variable
COLUMNS is used to determine the width. If that variable is not
defined, a width of 72 is assumed.
Non-option arguments are input files. These should be text files, but may be
mail folders or HTML. MIME messages are handled sensibly. When no output file
is specified, sentences will be generated from the input data directly.
However, loading a saved file is far faster than re-parsing the text files
- Determines the width (in character cells) of the output if
the -w, -columns option is not used. If not set, a width of 72 is
