INSTALLATION & USAGE

ArchLinux

This fortune-mod is available in the AUR, just look for the fortune-mod-metalfairytale-git and fortune-mod-metalfairytale-fr-git packages!

Manual installation

Provided you already have a fortune-cookie program installed, just copy the files metal-fairy-tale and metal-fairy-tale.dat to /usr/share/fortune! Thou shall then invoke the following command to bring some faerie to your terminal...

$ fortune metal-fairy-tale

Frog version

Same as above... just use metal-fairy-tale-fr and metal-fairy-tale-fr.dat instead! Invoke with:

$ fortune metal-fairy-tale-fr

Optional

If for any reason you want to regenerate the random access file (metal-fairy-tale.dat), say to have strings in a different order, just run strfile with the desired options:

$ strfile [MY_OWN_EVIL_OPTIONS] metal-fairy-tale
