Amazing Random Facts About the World's Greatest Hacker

The excellent GNU Octave contains a function fact. It is contributed by Jordi Gutiérrez Hermoso, and draws on the (now defunct) site stallmanfacts.com (accessible via archive.org) for a collection of random 'facts' about Richard M. Stallman. Each call of fact displays another (randomly chosen) fact.

R was lacking such a key piece of technology, and hence this package was created to fill a glaring void.

R> set.seed(123)                     # so that this is predictable
R> rmsfact()
