NAME

       dadadodo - exterminate all rational thought

SYNOPSIS

       dadadodo [ options ] [ input-files ]

DESCRIPTION

       dadadodo  is  a  program  that analyses texts for Markov chains of word
       probabilities and  then  generates  random  sentences  based  on  those
       probabilities.   Sometimes  these sentences are nonsense, but sometimes
       they cut right through to the heart of the  matter  and  reveal  hidden
       meanings.

OPTIONS

       dadadodo accepts the following options:

       -c, -count n
              Generate n sentences.

       -h, -help
              Show summary of options and exit.

       -html  Output HTML instead of plain text.

       -l, -load file
              Load compiled data from file (‘-’ for standard input).

       -o, -output file
              Save compiled data in file (‘-’ for standard output).

       -p, -pause s
              Delay s seconds between paragraphs.

       -w, -columns columns
              Format output for a device columns character cells in width.  If
              not specified, the value of the environment variable COLUMNS  is
              used to determine the width.  If that variable is not defined, a
              width of 72 is assumed.

NOTES

       Non-option arguments are input files.  These should be text files,  but
       may be mail folders or HTML.  MIME messages are handled sensibly.  When
       no output file is specified, sentences will be generated from the input
       data  directly.   However,  loading  a  saved  file  is far faster than
       re-parsing the text files each time.

ENVIRONMENT

       COLUMNS
              Determines the width (in character cells) of the output  if  the
              -w,  -columns  option is not used.  If not set, a width of 72 is
              assumed.
