Chapter 13. A Miscellany of Scripts

Chapter 13. A Miscellany of Scripts

This chapter contains a miscellany of scripts contributed by Usenet users. Each program is introduced with a brief description by the program's author. Our comments are placed inside brackets [like this]. Then the full program listing is shown. If the author did not supply an example, we generate one and describe it after the listing. Finally, in Section 13.1.1, we talk briefly about the program, highlighting some interesting points. Here is a summary of the scripts:
