;;; Commentary:

;; Support for random cookie fetches from phrase files, used for such
;; critical applications as emulating Zippy the Pinhead and confounding
;; the NSA Trunk Trawler.
;; The two entry points are `cookie' and `cookie-insert'.  The helper
;; function `shuffle-vector' may be of interest to programmers.
;; The code expects phrase files to be in one of two formats:
;; * ITS-style LINS format (strings terminated by ASCII 0 characters,
;; leading whitespace ignored).
;; * UNIX fortune file format (quotes terminated by %% on a line by itself).
;; Everything up to the first delimiter is treated as a comment.  Other
;; formats could be supported by adding alternates to the regexp
;; `cookie-delimiter'.
;; strfile(1) is the program used to compile the files for fortune(6).
;; In order to achieve total compatibility with strfile(1), cookie files
;; should start with two consecutive delimiters (and no comment).
;; This code derives from Steve Strassman's 1987 spook.el package, but
;; has been generalized so that it supports multiple simultaneous
;; cookie databases and fortune files.  It is intended to be called
;; from other packages such as yow.el and spook.el.
;; TO DO: teach cookie-snarf to auto-detect ITS PINS or UNIX fortune(6)
;; format and do the right thing.
