README.md

rank-amateur-cowsay

This is cowsay, imported directly from my ancient CVS repository, plus a few documentation tweaks to make it a bit more friendly to GitHub. Functionality remains unchanged from all pre-GitHub commits.

Cowsay was a project for learning how to use Perl 5, as well as general amusement. If the code looks like it was written by an inexperienced programmer, that's because it was.

If you are interested in the future of cowsay beyond what is here, then I encourage you to read CONTRIBUTING.md in this directory.

I am no longer interested in maintaining cowsay; there are other demands on my time that take precedence.

Enthusiasm for cowsay has gone far beyond what I expected, and if cowsay is to have a future, then the least I can do is not stand in the way of it.

Enjoy cowsay for what it was meant to be: simple and silly.
