Prints a random, sometimes funny fortune at the command line

File Information

This is my implementation of the popular Unix/Linux program Fortune in MATLAB. To install it, simply unzip the file archive to a folder, and run "initial.m", this will create the MAT-files containing the fortunes. After that type "fortune" at the command line for a random clean fortune, use the "off" flags for an offensive fortune, and read the readme or header of the file for more information.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.0.1 (R14SP1)
Other requirements Has only been tested using Matlab 7.0 with SP2, but I see no reason it shouldn't work on any other.

Unable to read file 'clean_fortunes.mat': no such file or directory.

Error in fortune (line 62)

And indeed there is no such file.
