ppg256 (Perl Poetry Generator in 256 Characters)

Description (in English): 

Author description: ppg256-1, the first program in the ppg256 series, was Montfort's new year's poem for 2008. It is a Perl program that generates poems without recourse to any external dictionary, word list, or other data file. It was written, in part, to determine the essential elements of a poetry generator. The program itself is shorter than this description.
