quotes


quotes, a FORTRAN90 code which extracts and displays a random quotation from a file.

This can be a cheerful utility to invoke at login time. It's best used with a file of your favorite quotes, jokes, fortunes or song lyrics. To produce a quote, the program first examines a file containing a list of quote files. It selects one of these at random. Then it opens the selected quote file, and chooses a block of text at random (delimited by blank lines), and prints it.
