Ouch... I'm pretty scared right now. On the other hand, I will be scared about doing this forever, and it won't really change much.

I'm hereby announcing the first release of WordBuilder, an application WIP.

WordBuilder is a pretty simple application for generating words (And a few other things, I've found.)

It uses a set of rules that you define to generate words. Rules may call other rules, pretty much like what Context Free does for graphics. Yes, I took some inspiration from that.

Why am I telling you this? Because one of its uses would be to generate place names according to your specific needs.

Another would be to generate people to inhabit your cities. With names, occupations, such things.

Of course, you could also go all out and create languages for your countries, with inflections and conjugations and all that jazz.

Anyhow. It's here, and it's full of bugs (I've found some, and will fix them soonish). Download it from http://whee.dk/wordbuilder/WordBuilder.msi and please, if you find a bug, report it at http://whee.dk/thebuggenie/ ?

I have some sample projects in the http://whee.dk/wordbuilder/ folder, and there's some help on the commands to be found here: http://whee.dk/thebuggenie/modules/p...p?article_id=2

Any questions are welcome - fire away at arne [at] whee.dk or PM me.

Thank you for your time.
