Eliza for the Mac

· Miscellany

Just learned that a versio nof Eliza is built into OS X:

In the terminal type emacs and hit Return. When the editor has loaded, hold Shift and hit the Escape key. Then type x, then doctor and hit Return. Answer the first question and proceed from there. When you’re done, Ctrl-X Ctrl-C will quit the editor. [via same as it ever was]

Tried a little “talking therapy.” Eliza is more clueless than I remember. (I seem to recall a version called Eliza2 that ran on the DEC PDP/11 systems we used to have in school.)
