       dadadodo - exterminate all rational thought


       dadadodo [ options ] [ input-files ]


       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.


       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.


       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.


              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.
