Informash

Informash is a text generator using Markov Chains to generate new, potentially amusing text from one or more input documents.

It is written in Haskell using GHC.

Building

You will need:

  • A not-too-old version of GHC.
  • Cabal (usually included with GHC).
  • A sufficiently Unix-ish environment containing GNU Make and Perl 5.

(That last isn't strictly necessary. You can just run the necessary commands by hand. Perl is only needed to make the manual, so you can live without that too.)

Assuming you wish to install informash in /usr/local, simply do the following:

make cabal-deps
make
sudo make install INSTDIR=/usr/local

Documentation

See the included man page. There's an online version here.
