This module provides an interface to fortune cookie databases, as implemented by the fortune-mod-9708 distribution (which is widely used in the Linux world, and available with at least the Red Hat and Debian distributions). Currently, it is a read-only interface. If I ever need to a read-write interface, I suppose I'll write one; if *you* need one, feel free to write it and send me a patch! AVAILABILITY ------------ The latest version of this module should be available at one of: http://search.cpan.org/~gward/ https://bitbucket.org/gward/perl-fortune/ CREDITS ------- Thanks to Bill Ward <firstname.lastname@example.org> for adding the code that allows reading a fortune file that doesn't have a header (index) file.
