;;; Synched up with: FSF 19.34.

;;; Commentary:

;; The single entry point, `dissociated-press', applies a travesty
;; generator to the current buffer.  The results can be quite amusing.

;;; Code:

(defun dissociated-press (&optional arg)
  "Dissociate the text of the current buffer.
Output goes in buffer named *Dissociation*,
which is redisplayed each time text is added to it.
Every so often the user must say whether to continue.
If ARG is positive, require ARG chars of continuity.
If ARG is negative, require -ARG words of continuity.
Default is 2."
  (interactive "P")
  (setq arg (if arg (prefix-numeric-value arg) 2))
  (let* ((inbuf (current-buffer))
	 (outbuf (get-buffer-create "*Dissociation*"))
	 (move-function (if (> arg 0) 'forward-char 'forward-word))
	 (move-amount (if (> arg 0) arg (- arg)))
	 (search-function (if (> arg 0) 'search-forward 'word-search-forward))
	 (last-query-point 0))
    (if (= (point-max) (point-min))
