Form for Running Barnyard's Markov Monkey Random Text Generator

The depth parameter controls how many previous characters each character depends upon. For example, if depth = 0 then each character is chosen independently of all the rest. If depth = 4, then each character is chosen according to the conditional distribution given the most recent 4 characters.

This program will generate 3000 random characters. The program is quite large and takes 10-30 seconds to run, so be patient.

Choose the depth: 0 1 2 3 4

Enter a seed for the random number generator. If no number is entered the program will use the process id of the script. (The seed should be an integer in the range 0-65535.) Seed =
