NAME

       Polygen  -  Polygen  is  an  advanced  gadget for creating zen nonsense
       according to a grammar definition, that is following custom syntactical
       and lexical rules.

SYNOPSIS

       polygen [options] sources

DESCRIPTION

       Polygen is an innovative tool for computing fluky wisdom according to a
       grammar definition, that is following custom  syntactical  and  lexical
       rules.

       Formally,  it is an interpreter of a language itself designed to define
       languages, where to interpret means executing a source program in  real
       time and eventually outputting its result.

       Here  a  source program is a grammar definition, the execution consists
       in the exploration of such grammar by selecting a random path  and  the
       result is the sentence built on the way.

       Though  PolyGen  is  quite  a seriuos piece of software then, what else
       would be more noble for it  than  being  used  as  a  parody  tool  for
       linguistical habits, stereotypes and trends of this foolish era?

       Principles  of  parody  are  focusing a ridiculous topic and eventually
       abstracting  its  rules  and  schemes  (here  in  terms  of  a  grammar
       definition) by which reproducing it through the variatio device.

       And  randomization  is  perfect  at  this  purpose thanks to its purely
       asemantic behaviour =:)

OPTIONS

       Please run polygen without parameters for an explanation on how to  run
       polygen.
