King James Programming

For those not familiar with Markov chains, essentially they are a statistical analysis that is fed in a series of events and then determines how often event 'b' follows event  'a' and event 'd' follows event 'b' and so forth and so on.

The fun part is when you use these chains to produce a pseudo-random output. Randomly walking the chain, picking the next event based on how often it was the next item in the input.

Back in college I helped develop some music software based around this concept.

So what happens when you feed equal parts King James Bible and Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs?

Saying, There was in a rage with him because of the special forms

…the saints of the most common optimizations performed by compilers is the optimization of variable lookup. Our compiler, as we have borne the image of Baal, and made a king over all Israel

Works for me.
