We have a busybox also in muLinux; maybe not up-to-date to recent

GPL? An hello-work that takes 200k? Maybe, using Xlib or GTK++++ :-)

The link is saved. Without the suggestions from the list I can't

I wish to increase the number of latin sentences in the rustic
muLinux fortune database.
Can someone point my browser toward some Internet resource?

If someone like to do the work for me:
The file is /usr/games/lib/fortune.db. You can add new sentences
with the syntax:

... sentence ...

In the first row, there is the entry "TOT=", with the total number
of sentences in the DB. Yes, a very rustic data-base.

you with, I don't. Would you take two negative messages? - Woody Allen
