All of these programs are filters to do all sorts of strange things to
text. No personal, racial, religious or societal slurs are intended.
For amusement only.
All the filters read input from stdin, change it, and write the
filtered text to stdout.
b1ff The B1FF filter
chef convert English on stdin to Mock Swedish on stdout
eleet K3wl hacker slang
fanboy Speak like a fanboy. Filters out extraneous words and focuses on
the words fans use. By default, it will speak like a fan of
git/Linus/linux development. To change this, pass as parameters
the words that the fanboy typically uses. Alternatively, pass
the name of a topic that typically has fanboys to use a
predefined word list.
fudd Elmer Fudd
jethro Hillbilly text filter
jive Jive English
Runs text through a random selection of the rest of the filters,
to make really weird output.
ken English into Cockney, featuring (dubious) rhyming slang for a
lot of computer terminology.
kraut Generates text with a bad German accent.
kenny Generates text as spoken by Kenny on South Park.
ky00te This program places a very cute (and familiar to FurryMuck fans)
accent on any text file.
Wiped out text like can be found in nethack.
censor CDA-ize text
nyc Brooklyn English
pirate Talk like a pirate.
Makes text look like it came from the keyboard of Carsten
Fake scottish (dwarven) accent filter, inspired by the character
"Durkon" from Order of the Stick.

studly Studly caps.
Use glorious unicode to the fullest possibile extent. As seen
previously in many man pages.
Flips text upside down. Stand on your head and squint to read
Lists samples of the output of all the filters.
pig From the bsdgames package, pig converts text to pig latin.
From the dog package, dog can also function as a filter,
converting text to OOG-speak.
