Wrote a perl script to generate page size chunks of story

I wrote a perl script to take a raw text file and convert it to a story with pages which are 66 lines each.

I’d link the script in here, but if it is a .pl, browsers barf. Okay, here it is story.pl. Very scary and needs to be made safe.

You can check out my first effort, which produces a very plain styled web page, at Batter Up. It took a couple of hours to tweak this the way I wanted it, it still needs some factoring and style, but once I got it up and running, I was able to suck in a second story in about 5 minutes. And we have Abduction, abduction, whaat’s your function?

Time for bed, but the cat just jumped up on my lap…
