I have no idea what this is. But it's representative of some of the truly random stuff I found in my random folder. It appears to alternate outputting the first 256 characters of both the openwin rgb color list and my ND .login script, alternating one character at a time, which I can't think of any way that that wouldn't produce gibberish. If only I could remember what, why or how. I guess there are some unused variables/functions that perhaps indicate this was a work in progress? Last modified August 24, 1998.
