Talk:Markov chain text generator

From Rosetta Code

Task is ambiguous

Need to specify algorithm in task description (either copy the description or get a different one here). Need to specify test data in task description (ideally host that here, but if it is huge at least provide a stable off-site link). Need to specify value (or values) for n (in n-grams) in task description - the current implementation looks like it only uses 2-grams and, if that is the intent, this constraint should be specified in the task description. --Rdm (talk) 18:21, 27 June 2016 (UTC)


I hope the text for the task is now clearer!

And by the way, the C++ implementation does not uses 2-grams as Rdm supposed - take a look at the call to create in "main". --Paulo Jorente (talk) 07:43, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Strangeness with safari

Currently, the J entry wraps oddly in Safari.

This seems to be because of the style sheet which contains word-wrap: break-word; (along with a bunch of other stuff). Disabling this removes the wrapping (which seems to be on character boundaries rather than word boundaries).

I'm not sure why we have things set up this way, but my impression is that if we are trying to achieve word wrap we should not be using the pre tag (even in the heavily doctored way that it's currently being used).

Any thoughts on this? --Rdm (talk) 08:07, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

I just had my REXX entry use a simple word-wrap for the output, based on the width (or linesize) of the terminal screen.     Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.     -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 06:47, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

(kinda) broken link?

Does anyone else get a semi-broken link   (within the first sentence of this task's preamble)?

It does directs me to the
[ Markov Chain algorithm]
and it displays:

                             Please accept our apologies!
                             We can't seem to find the page you're looking for.

Once there, I enter   (at their site search window):

                             Markov Chain algorithm

but still no joy.     -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 07:00, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
