Jargon File to Cookie Reformatter v1.2
Blame: Kevin Brott <kbrott atsign gmail d0t com>
Date: Sun Nov 22 08:00:00 PST 2015

Converts the newer [>= v4.4.1] xml-style Lexicon of ESR's Jargon File [local mirror] to a Unix fortune cookie file in the current working directory.
Suitable for the Unix fortune program [sources], or any file-format compliant Wintendo implementation of it like wfortune.
Assumes that $WDIR is defined as the TOP-level DIR of a Jargon File mirror.  See the script for an example of a working mirror-script.
 Also assumes that the GNU-equivalent of each of the commands is available.  Change the appropriate PROGRAMS definition to fit your command locations.
 This code is mostly portable across SysV systems - but YMMV.  On most Linux distributions you should not have to change anything but $WDIR.

cruft together: vt.

   (also cruft up) To throw together something ugly but temporarily
   workable. Like vt. kluge up, but more pejorative. "There isn't any
   program now to reverse all the lines of a file, but I can probably
   cruft one together in about 10 minutes." See hack together, hack up,
   kluge up, crufty.
