GNU Talk Filters are filter programs that convert ordinary English text into text that mimics a stereotyped or otherwise humorous dialect. These filters have been in the public domain for many years, but now for the first time they are provided as a single integrated package.
The filters include austro, b1ff, brooklyn, chef, cockney, drawl, dubya, fudd, funetak, jethro, jive, kraut, pansy, pirate, postmodern, redneck, valspeak, and warez. Each program reads from standard input and writes to standard output.
This version of the package also provides the filters as a C library, so they can be easily embedded in other programs.
The package includes a plugin that integrates the GNU Talk Filters library with the GAIM instant messenger program. With this plugin, you can select one of the filters to be applied to all outgoing messages that you type, and you can switch between filters (or disable filtering) at any time.
Please note that some of the filters contain language that some may find objectionable. They are provided uncensored, in their original form. By downloading this software, you agree to accept these terms. Source code and full documentation are included.
