No longer a secondary mirror, because XOOM.com's ftp servers are down. The XOOM mirror has the old version! Don't use it! This site was a secondary mirror because of Tripod's server setup: it thinks the file "acro" is text/html. If you want to get acro here, you can click on the links below. The primary mirror was at "http://members.xoom.com/verily/acro.html".
The (rather unreliable) main site of this program, as well as the author, is at "http://esmith.wintek.com/programs/acro/". It is the soonest to be updated, as well as containing an archive of all previous releases, and a changelog-like thingie.
acro is a perl program i made to generate random acronyms, a la Undernet #acro. it doesn't guide you through the acronym process, it just generates the acronyms.
[23 October 1999]: version 2.1.02 is out. version 2.1.02 allows you to generate multiple acros, separated by newlines. useful for password generation.
any bug reports/etc. should go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- acro.txt - the perl program, with a .txt extension so the server doesn't think it's html.
- acro.man - man page. run "groff -Tascii -man acro.man | more" or copy it to /usr/man/man6/acro.6 and then run mandb or somesuch to use it.
