Projects / bogosort


bogosort sorts files or its standard input using the "bogo-sort" algorithm. It can also just randomise the lines in its input, allowing you to perform your own check in a loop.

            Re: Just one question
            It's mentioned in the documentation. ;)

            I'd been thinking it would be fun, and then I started using alsaplayer which then couldn't play songs randomly, so I wrote a program to reorder the lines in playlists randomly.
            When I'd done that, I had practically written a bogosort, so I decided to finnish it.

            Also I just wanted to learn more about automake, autoconf, and writing infomanuals and manpages.
