Subject: re: 99 bottles in an rc shell script.

Message-ID: <199705012113.QAA09988@pertsserver.cs.uiuc.edu> (raw)

I had to join in the fun (even though I don't drink beer).

This one not only drinks beer, it also eats CPU. 
(You get a test mode free of charge by typing "beer <num>".
It may or may not use builtins exclusively...
depending on your philosophy.)
