Hackage Matrix CI

This library can be used to generate random sequences of anything with a behaviour that is adapted to some training data. Input a marketing text or a speech and recompose it to another arbitrary text of this sort. Input a dictionary of person names and create new names. Input a sequence of notes and get out a new melody. Input a set of Haskell modules and generate ... nice idea but the result will certainly have neither correct syntax nor types. I think, it's a good thing about Haskell, that you cannot fool it so easily. The idea is very simple: The algorithm analyses your input/training data with respect to how likely an a or e follows the letters r and e. Then on recomposition it chooses subsequent letters randomly according to the frequencies found in the training data. This library is well suited for bull-shit generators.
