This is the homepage for the Dada Engine.
This page is rather old, and has been moved almost unedited from its
previous home on zikzak.net. I haven't had time to actively maintain it.
Oh well; the source code is here, so that's a start...
The Dada Engine is a system for generating random text from grammars.
It compiles and runs on (most) UNIX-like systems.
The current Dada Engine distribution is 1.03. It may be downloaded
from this link.
A patch for upgrading 1.02 to 1.03 may be downloaded
The Dada Engine manual is now online.
An application of the Dada Engine, the
Generator, is accessible via the Web.
18-8-2000: Fixed a stupid bug; now it does compile without modification...
9-6-2000: Released 1.02, a bugfix release. It should finally compile
with glibc 2.0 without modification. (though it didn't...)
29-4-1996: Released 1.01, a bugfix release.
