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.

Marko is a simple toolset that allows you to create markov chain databases of a corpus (or two) of text and then allows you to compare unknown texts to these databases. For any two marko databases you can calculate the probability that the unknown body is related to one over the other. Possible applications include intelligent mail filtering, plagiarism detection, and historical research.
PottyMouth transforms completely unstructured and untrusted text to valid, nice-looking, completely safe XHTML. PottyMouth is designed to handle input text from non-technical, potentially careless, or malicious users. It produces HTML that is completely safe, programmatically and visually, to include on any Web page. You don't need to make your users read any instructions before they start typing. They don't even need to know that PottyMouth is being used.
Redet is a tool for developing and executing regular expressions using any of more than 50 search programs, editors, and programming languages, intended both for developing regular expressions for use elsewhere and as a search tool in its own right. For each program in each locale, a palette showing the available constructs is provided. The properties of each program are determined by runtime tests, which guarantees that they will be correct for the program version and locale. Additional features include persistent history, extensive help, a variety of character entry tools, and the ability to change locale while running. Redet is highly configurable and fully supports Unicode.
