alt.newsgroups. Once in a great while flamer says something profound:
Hmmm - once in a VERY great while :-)
IMPORTANT NOTE: Flamer is a narrow minded red-necked jerk - BUT... he isn't me! Don't complain to me if he offends you.
Programs like this are called "travesty generators" - and there are lots of them around.
./configure make make installIf you are running Windoze or something that can't run configure scripts and makefiles, don't sweat it. There is just one C++ source file - no special options or libraries.
No, I won't provide a binary version, project files and such.
eg: When someone posts a complaint about someone writing an email in a non-English language:
flamer 1000 | mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Ian G. Batten, (Batten@uk.ac.bham.multics) pulled the data out of it, and rewrote it as PL/1 on Multics, then re-rewrote it in GNU-emacs-lisp, where I found it - and stole the data out of it.
I have since re-re-rewritten it in Lattice C for Atari-ST, then re-re-re-rewritten it in Borland C++ for IBM-PC, then finally ported it to g++ under Linux and hence to C++ under IRIX - and still neither Ian nor I, know who originally had the idea. Good programs never die - they just get re-re-written!
I have disposed of some of the phrases that didn't seem to scan right, or which were too repetitive - and added some new ones to add further variety.
I have also changed some of the words to bring them more into the 90's and to remove stuff that is only funny to a British audience.
You should probably re-(N)-write it. That's what most people do with it!
