“The jit.ameba object began life as a completely failed attempt at a linear interpolation object. As the Oblique Strategies say, “Honor thy error as a hidden intention.” If you’re interested in linear interpolation objects, try the jit.plur object. Otherwise, please enjoy the mess.”
Using the text processing example I built a 4th order Markov chain for “The Cat in The Hat” (by Dr. Seuss). Here is some of the result (it continues to infinity) with indentation added for readability:
The sat the sun is not shine.
It was to Sit! Sit!
And I sat in the house
How I wish We had something went BUMP! How I wish We did not shine.
It was to us jump! We looked!
The Cat in that cold to go out And wet to play.
So all we sat in the Hat! And he saw him!
Then we sat is wet to Sit! Sit!
And to go out
And the house
Why do was too wet And there little bit. And wet to go out
And there we saw him step in on that?
How I wish We sat is nothing at all.
So all we could do was too wet day.
So all we sat the house
All that is fun there we can have Lots of good fun the mat!
We had something at all.
So wet to go out And the sun is wet to Sit! Sit!
And I said too wet to do I know it is not sunny!
Too we can have Lots of good funny!
Too wet And I sat is fun the house. We sat the house. We saw him!
The Cat is wet to us.
