Replying to bbjimmy:

Type fortune in the terminal and get an error.

The fortune.c file I uploaded is a fix( sort of anyway ). fortune will now look for "\n%\n" instead of "#@#" as a delimiter. it also opens a file named default in /boot/beos/etc/fortunes/. this means that one of the included fortune files must be renamed default. It still does not allow a command line file selection. One of these days I might learn how to program in c or c++. until then i'll stay with basic and hac some c files by guess, trial and error.

Have tested this patch and it works if you rename one om the files to default..

So applaying this patch and renaming one of them (or make a link) and then I think we can close this one for now :)
