DESCRIPTION

All of these programs are filters to do all sorts of strange things to text. No personal, racial, religious or societal slurs are intended. For amusement only.
All the filters read input from stdin, change it, and write the filtered text to stdout. Some filters also support reading from files and writing to stdout.
b1ff
The B1FF filter
lolcat
As seen in internet gifs everywhere.
cockney
Cockney English
chef
convert English on stdin to Mock Swedish on stdout
eleet
K3wl hacker slang
fanboy
Speak like a fanboy. Filters out extraneous words and focuses on the words fans use. By default, it will speak like a fan of git/Linus/linux development. To change this, pass as parameters the words that the fanboy typically uses. Alternatively, pass the name of a topic that typically has fanboys to use a predefined word list.
fudd
Elmer Fudd
jethro
Hillbilly text filter
jive
Jive English
jibberish
Runs text through a random selection of the rest of the filters, to make really weird output.
ken
English into Cockney, featuring (dubious) rhyming slang for a lot of computer terminology.
kraut
Generates text with a bad German accent.
kenny
Generates text as spoken by Kenny on South Park.
ky00te
This program places a very cute (and familiar to FurryMuck fans) accent on any text file.
nethackify
Wiped out text like can be found in nethack.
newspeak
A-la-1984
censor
CDA-ize text
nyc
Brooklyn English
pirate
Talk like a pirate.
rasterman
Makes text look like it came from the keyboard of Carsten Haitzler.
scottish
Fake scottish (dwarven) accent filter, inspired by the character "Durkon" from Order of the Stick.
spammer
Turns honest text into something that is liable to be flagged as spam.
scramble
Scramble the "inner" letters of each word in the input into a random order. The resulting text is still strangely readable.
studly
Studly caps.
uniencode
Use glorious unicode to the fullest possible extent. As seen previously in many man pages.
upside-down
Flips text upside down. Stand on your head and squint to read the output.

SEE ALSO

Other filters:
pig
From the bsdgames package, pig converts text to pig latin.
dog --oog
From the dog package, dog can also function as a filter, converting text to OOG-speak.
