markv is an incredibly useful program that converts perfectly good text files into utter nonsense.
Version: 1.1.0markv is an incredibly useful program that converts perfectly good text files into utter nonsense. (Why? Because it's good for you.)
Operating System: Linux
It uses an algorithm from Jon Bentley's book, Programming Pearls, to recreate the behavior of Mark V. Shaney, a famous program by Bruce Ellis and Don P. Mitchell.
Usage: markv [OPTIONS] [FILE ...]
markv [OPTIONS] --load FILE
Takes ASCII text files and outputs nonsense
-d, --depth NUM search depth (1 to 10, default 2)
-h, --help show this usage message, then exit
-l, --load FILE load a previously stored data file
-m, --max NUM maximum number of words to produce
-o, --output FILE write to FILE instead of standard output
-p, --para format output to mimic paragraphs
-s, --store output processed data for later use
-S, --seed NUM seed random number generator with NUM
-v, --version show program version, then exit
-w, --width NUM maximum line width for output
The load and store options are mutually exclusive.
The depth option has no effect on loaded data files.
