R Interface to 'FOAAS'

R access to the 'FOAAS' (F... Off As A Service) web service is provided.


R interface to the FOAAS service

You can install released version of the package from CRAN using the

install.packages("rfoaas")

function.

Just like FOAAS, the package provides a number of standard profanity-issuing access points, as well as some less profane classics from pop culture:

R> greed("R Programming", "Random R Hacker")
The point is, ladies and gentleman, that r programming -- for lack of a better word -- is 
good. R Programming is right. R Programming works. R Programming clarifies, cuts through, 
and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. R Programming, in all of its forms -- R 
Programming for life, for money, for love, knowledge -- has marked the upward surge of 
mankind. - Random R Hacker 
R> 

This shows the default print method as action as well which wraps long paragraphs.

Since version 0.1.6, internationalization is taken more seriously, so if you want to express the preceeding message even more lovingly in German, you can do so:

R> greed("R Programming", "Random R Hacker", language="de")
Der Punkt ist, meine Damen und Herren, dass r-Programmierung - in Ermangelung eines besseren 
Wortes - ist gut. R-Programmierung richtig ist. R-Programmierung funktioniert. R 
Programmierung stellt klar, durchschneidet, und fängt die Essenz des evolutionären Geistes. 
R Programmierung, in all seinen Formen - R-Programmierung für das Leben, für Geld, für die 
Liebe, Wissen - hat die Aufwärtsschub der Menschheit geprägt. - Random R Hacker 
R> 

Lastly, there is also an interface to shoutcloud which provides the immensely useful ALL CAPS AS A SERVICE because, well, sometimes you just got to yell:

R> greed("R Programming", "Random R Hacker", filter="shoutcloud")
THE POINT IS, LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THAT R PROGRAMMING -- FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD -- IS 
GOOD. R PROGRAMMING IS RIGHT. R PROGRAMMING WORKS. R PROGRAMMING CLARIFIES, CUTS THROUGH, 
AND CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF THE EVOLUTIONARY SPIRIT. R PROGRAMMING, IN ALL OF ITS FORMS -- R 
PROGRAMMING FOR LIFE, FOR MONEY, FOR LOVE, KNOWLEDGE -- HAS MARKED THE UPWARD SURGE OF 
MANKIND. - RANDOM R HACKER
