Subject: [REBOL] Distorter (?)
I shouldn't have done this. In fact, I have a lot of other things to do. But
Rebol is so distracting. OK, here it is.
The other day, I asked this list for word lists. And I found one. I then
made a rebol cgi script, that I call a "distorter". I am not sure if this is
the best (or even the right) name for it, so all you native english speakers
out there, let me hear if you'd like this to have some other (more
This is what it does: you ask for some html page, the distorter downloads
it, parses through its word-list (which is very comprehensive!), changes a
few words here and there (randomly), then pushes the results bak to you. It
makes web pages look a little... funny. Take a look at what it does to
I sendt a link
to a friend of mine and said they had a few typos on their web page. He
didn't look at the URL in his browser, and was a bit... surprised.
The script doesn't handle POST forms yet, and I think maybe GET forms may be
a problem too, on some pages. I'm gonna fix that some time.
There's a frequency setting too:
http://helpinhand.com/cgi-bin/distort.r?url=http://www.lexicon.net/anton/&f100 will change
100% of the words that the distorter recognizes, whereas
omitting "&F=100" will stick to default, which is 25 >= random 100
Hope I'm not bugging you all with my bragging of this script. It's not very
extra-ordinary compared to what you all make, but I find it very much fun.
Hope to get some name propositions!
