gfortune

gfortune is a replacement for the traditional Berkeley fortune program included with the BSD games package. This implementation supports recursion down a tree of fortune files, the option to limit the number of lines output (for scripting), and other features. It fully maintains the functionality of the original. It includes the author's own archive of fortune files.

        Thank you. It took me 7 years to apply this patch. But here you go. Also, with autoconf. I'm never quite sure whether that's a good thing or not.

        Compiling with newer GCC
        If you are compiling gfortune 1.0.0 with a newer GCC, you'll need to apply this patch to fix the multi-line changes in GCC.
