NAME

kenny.pl -- translate from and to KennySpeak

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

kenny.pl [ -h ] [ -u ] [ -k | -d ] [ file1 ] [ file2 ] ...

OVERVIEW

kenny.pl translates a given text from or to KennySpeak. KennySpeak looks like this:



    "Ppfmfp ppmffm mfmppfmpm, fmpmfpmppffmfpmmpp
     pmpmffpmfpmfmppmpm Pmpmppppppppffm!"



DESCRIPTION

kenny.pl will read the given filenames, translate them and print the results on stdout. If you don’t give a filename, stdin is used. A - as a filename means stdin.

Without any parameters, kenny.pl will look at the first line of input and guess which way you want to translate. If kenny.pl guesses wrong, you must select the translation mode using the -k or -d switch.

    Switches

-h This will print a short notice and a quick summary of the available switches.
-u This will convert German umlauts to Ae, Oe, Ue, ae, oe, ue and ss so that they can be kennyfied correctly.
-k Kennyfy. This forces the input to be translated into KennySpeak.
-d Dekennyfy. This forces the input to be translated back from KennySpeak.

VERSION

This is $Revision: 1.7 $.

BUGS

The -u switch might not work for charsets other than Latin-1. You might try to convert the kenny.pl script using recode to change it from Latin-1 to your preferred charset.
