v2.0.0, 14 Oct 2014
Well, there's not so much to say about pysay, it's basically... cowsay! :D This version, though, has been completely rewritten into Python, trying to maintain the original behaviour of cowsay. Some gotchas has been corrected, such as the way cowsay handles the face flags (you can use -d -b together and you can do the same with -g -T, which is not so bad, but not so smart too). Other minor little strange glitches have been fixed naturally during the translation process. The way the input text is processed has been slightly modified, improving the robustness against bad formatted text (please, have a look at the source code for further information).
The script is now a little more multi-platform, just follow the instructions in the INSTALL.md file that apply to your system.
If you're interested in the cowsay story, the README file of the standard cowsay 3.03 by Tony Monroe should satisfy your curiosity (you can find it at: http://www.nog.net/~tony/warez).
This package contains the new cow file python.cow.
Please read INSTALL.md.
Type "pysay -h" to understand the pysay usage.
Look at the source code for more technical details.
