The fortune-file handling scripts:
This is the best option to take. Why bother reading. It is a very
small download, anyway !. Download the whole thing and
view all the scripts together.
And for those who want to download specific ones only:
This is an e-mail sig generator (for mutt/ pine/ elm mailers). This is
capable of generating random or specific sigs from the LOST fortune-file,
or from an alternate signature set. Also capable of NIL sig, reserved sig,
company disclaimer and PGP/ gnupg ascii-armor sig placement for each mail
seperately (depending upon your choice).
Also a sig generator, less versatile and more generic. Capable of random
LOST or sigs from an alternate sig set. Also capable of NIL and reserved sigs.
PGP sigs are not supported. This is not integrated with any mailer. It merely
outputs a sig to a text file. The .signature file used by your mailer needs
to be symlinked to this output. Can be used with any mailer which supports
a signature file.
This generates signatutes at predefined intervals in the background
from LOST fotune-file. Totally non-intrusive. If your .signature file is
symlinked to output of this file, the random LOST sig will be sent with
A clone of the bsd fortune program. This however, does not need a
binary format to run, and produces a random LOST (or any other fortune
file) to STDOUT directly from the ASCII source.
Extra utilities (handy!). Not as many as for the datadir version.
You may need these.
