in reply to Speech synthesis module

If you don't really need arbitrary text, you might find Win32::Sound useful. I use it in many of my long-running utilities to alert me of problems. You can easily record messages into .WAV files (I have been known to get my kids to record messages too), or you can assemble a message from individual .WAVs for some flexibility. For instance I have a file that says "unable to open" and then two other files that say "input" and "output". It's simple to keep a directory of such resources and assemble statements as needed, and though it doesn't give you the flexibility of speech synthesis, the sound is probably more understandable and I imagine it uses a lot less CPU.

[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
