the Scandroid Arrives

It's a program that scans iambic pentameters. It does a good enough job that its mistakes are interesting. It's available for Mac (OS 10.3 only) and Windows:

Download the Scandroid

The Manual is also available there as a separately downloadable PDF file (it's included in the Mac and Win downloads too).

This is version 0.2a. Version 1.0 is in the works, and it offers important additions and improvements. Most important, it will handle other meters, anapestic ones in particular. Figuring out how to decide — how we decide — whether a line is anapestic or iambic is difficult enough to constitute a reason for writing the program. I'm collecting other questions that the program raises. If anyone finds others, and of course if anyone finds bugs, I'd be very glad to hear.

The program is published under a GNU Public License. The source code (in Python) is available on the same site as the program itself.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
