Acme::POE::Acronym::Generator - Generate random POE acronyms.

SYNOPSIS

  use strict;
  use warnings;
  use Acme::POE::Acronym::Generator;

  my $poegen = Acme::POE::Acronym::Generator->new();

  for ( 1 .. 10 ) {
    my $acronym = $poegen->generate();

  }

DESCRIPTION

What does POE stand for?" is a common question, and people have expanded the acronym in several ways.

Acme::POE::Acronym::Generator produces randomly generated expansions of the POE acronym ( or at your option any other arbitary word ).

CONSTRUCTOR

new

  'dict', the path to the words file to use, default is /usr/share/dict/words;
  'wordlist', an arrayref consisting of words to use, this overrides the use of dict file;
  'key', provide a word to make an acronym for instead of POE;

If the dict file doesn't exist it will use a very small subset of words to generate responses.

Returns a shiny Acme::POE::Acronym::Generator object.

METHODS

generate

Takes no parameters.

In a scalar context, returns a string containing the acronym.

In a list context, returns the individual words of the acronym as a list.
