strdb was the outgrowth of my work on fortune-mod. I was just about ready to release when I suffered a moment of fatigue while cleaning up after testing (rm test. *), and after restoring that, went into the first great disk crisis, and other crises following. Work got halted, and somehow never resumed. Then xml happened, and strdb began to seem pointless.

The current code, such as it is, is available. I should prolly mention that the main thing that I use it for, at this point, is random signatures (the sigstr utility).

What's it for?

A little history


Your best bet, until I become a less ineradicably lazy creature, is to read the chatter in the various files.
