GhostWriter

In scripting, copy-pasting blocks of text is fast, simple, and effective. It's also boring. The solution: a command line accessible application that outputs blocks of text one character at a time. You'll swear a ghost was at the keyboard...

USAGE: (Command Line)

GhostWriter.ahk [options] mode content target

options: -fast greatly reduces delays

modes:
t __ parrots content; ignores target param
f __ parrots file content; ignores target param
tf __ appends content to target file
ff __ appends file content to target file
rc __ treats content and target as text; simultaneously outputs both on separate lines

content: the text to be parroted; mode may specify that it is actually a filename, whose contents should be parroted

target: the file to be appended by content; may be ignored; for rc is treated as text

EXAMPLES:

GhostWriter.ahk t "text to be parroted a character at a time"
GhostWriter.ahk -fast t "text to be parroted very rapidly"
GhostWriter.ahk f "FileWhoseContentsWillBeParroted.txt"
GhostWriter.ahk tf "text which will be appended" "FileToBeAppended.txt"
GhostWriter.ahk ff "AppendingFileContents.txt" "FileToBeAppended.txt"
GhostWriter.ahk rc "Slowly parroted text" "Rappidly parroted text."

NOTES:

The included driver may be run to demo the application. As file system configurations may differ, the config section of the autohotkey files may need editing.
