This is an AmigaOS implementation of the UNIX program Fortunes (it's not
a port: the source is completely original, clumsy, but original);
released under the GNU General Public License (source included). 
Displays a random quote, either in a requester or a CLI-window.

Main Features:
- output in a requester or a CLI.
- specify multiple custom quote-files (from which quotes are read).
- three quote-files included (star trek, linux & "zippy" quotes).
- includes program to convert DOS-textfiles to Amiga/UNIX-format (win2ami
1.0.2).
- includes program to convert Amiga/UNIX-textfiles to DOS-format (ami2win 1.0).
- includes program to count quotes in a quote-file (CountForts 0.10).
- includes program to split big quote-files (fsplit 1.1).
- source for all programs included, including previous versions.

Changes since last version:
- Ooops, accidentaly included the wrong version of fsplit, this one should work,
  sorry.
- CountForts bumped to 0.10, now displays in a requester (or a CLI). New syntax:
  "countforts [-t|--text] file(s)", the -t (or --text) works like in afortunes.
- See changekog.txt (in the archive) and readme.txt (also in the archive) for
  more information.

Installation:

- Unpack the afortunes.lha-archive with "lha e afortunes.lha [destination-dir/]"
- Copy the afortunes, countforts, win2ami, ami2win and fsplit binaries to c: (or
some-
  where else in your path). 
- Copy the "fortunes.txt" file to sys:s/

System Requirements:
- AmigaOS 2.04+ (Kickstart 37 and above).
