Fun With Markov Chains

“Program to scramble text”. “Here's the idea: scan through the text and create a huge frequency table of what words come after what other words.” and “Then, we generate output which is random, but has the same distribution of word groups.” Requires System 7. Crashes hard if it runs out of memory. (As some examples, with 3M of memory, it handled a 68K input file, but couldn’t handle a 825K file.) Partial source code is available (below).
