NAME
michael
SYNOPSIS
michael20 [options] file/location
DES‎CRIP‎TION
Michael has been developed with love, first version was born on an IBM-PC1 (!)
The last years I studied philosophy at the Ludwig-Maximilian-University in Munich,
so I didn't have the time to update michael.
Anyway, there was some progress.
Therefore it's time for a major update to michael 2.0-rc1!
I developed some new functions: DJing, chess playing, philosophical talk, comparing with history.

This is a release candidate and still work in progress.
Please report any trouble to me, I'll try to fix it.

Due to some minor bugs, michael will not necessarily do what he is supposed to do.
Michael is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

OPTIONS
--install
Will install Linux (if you are lucky) on all available systems within reach.
Last time my notebook suddenly was running AmigaOS.
Please backup your data.
PUT YOUR MOBILE INTO ANOTHER ROOM or the refrigerator!
Last time I touched the wrong button in vi on my phone and sent a friend 3572 SMS's
containing "Good night, looking forward to see you".
(OLIVIA, if you happen to read this, IT WASN'T MY FAULT, REALLY!
It have been 3752 SMS cause thats the sum of the ascii values of the SMS.
I just couldn't stop it, PLEASE, don't blame me for that.)
--program [asm|sh|pl|c|cpp] [des‎crip‎tion]
One or more programs are generated.
Dependent on the des‎crip‎tion parameter, they will do some things.
The parsing algorithm of [des‎crip‎tion] is however still in development,
the programs possibly have nothing in common with the des‎crip‎tion you passed.
--beer [count]
Only do this if you really know what you are doing.
--play [guitar|keys|violin|synth|drums]
Will produce random sounds, optionally on the selected instrument.
Hide amplifiers.
--climb
michael starts trying gaining height in space.
Preferred environment:
   -Frankenjura in the north of Nuremberg
   -Fontaine Bleau, France
--chess [game_number]
forks the bot "miscabc" which engages in the game [game_number] at fics.
Interesting play. Most often selects unusual and hairy gambits.
--philosophy [subject]
Returns a generated text.
The search algorithm looks for the term [subject] in the writings of Plato,
Aristoteles, Cusanus, Descartes, Kant, Fichte, and Heidegger and returns a mixture of sentences.
The probability generator seems to need some work,
somehow mainly citates of Cusanus are returned.
--DJ [style]
michael moves strangely and generates experimental music.
[style] is salted, hashed and used as parameter for the generation.
I guess it's techno. Havent found out the right style option yet for music.
Some people at the clubs seem to like it and also move strangely.
Obviously they are nearly as drunken as michael.
