gfortune description


gfortune is a replacement for the traditional Berkeley fortune program included with the BSD games package.

gfortune program was once referred to by a friend as that smart alec fortune program. I liked BSD fortune, but I wanted a couple of extra features. Then I read it and didn't like it, and so I started up on a full rewrite.

A week later, I had gfortune. I did weird things in those days.

Version 1.0.1 is released 7 years after version 1.0.0 because although you wouldn't think it, the C language has changed just a little in all that time. There was really little other purpose to a rerelease. I didn't put all the autoconf #ifdefs in, but the idea is there.

Version 1.0.0 is the rerelease with some user contributed patches included, please send me any bugfixes. This is also the first release of my fortune cookie database, still unsorted and containing much that is ephemeral or downright inaccurate. I believe that this distribution of quotes constitutes 'fair use of material'. Please note that while I maintain the cookie files, I do not ROT13 the offensive quotes, if you are easily offended, don't browse the files.

Here are some key features of "gfortune":

· -N flag to limit number of output lines
· New offensive fortune tagging system
· More and more versatile probability algorithms
· Recursive directory search
· Handles hundreds of fortune files fast.
· Many more, but I'm writing this web page years after the production of the program.. .
