Projects / GNU Talk Filters

GNU Talk Filters

The GNU Talk Filters are filter programs that convert ordinary English text into text that mimics a stereotyped or otherwise humorous dialect. Some of these filters have been in the public domain for many years, but here they are provided as a single integrated package. The filters include austro, b1ff, brooklyn, chef, cockney, drawl, dubya, fudd, funetak, jethro, jive, kraut, pansy, pirate, postmodern, redneck, valspeak, and warez. This package provides the filters both as individual executables and collectively as a C library, so they can be easily embedded in other programs.

            Compilation Failures
            Due to a syntactical mistake in the lex files, this package fails to compile with older versions of gcc (notably 2.95), but is known to compile fine with gcc 3.1 and older. A fix will be out shortly to correct this problem.
