What do you do on a lazy Sunday? Write programs of course! I was reading Tim Hartnell’s book Creating Adventure Games On Your Computer and ran across a little gem for generating random names. It is short and sweet and easily converted into Perl.
I spent more time making it pretty than actually converting the BASIC code. Typical me. Here are a few of the names it spat out at me:
Bojgo, Varoica, Bukpaoe, Savi, Dekzoza, Xein, Iondilo, Dokwota
Select here to generate your own.
Leave me a comment if you find this useful. I’m thinking I should hook this into some sort of MAD LIBS generator. Maybe a project for another day.
