Really fast Markov chains in ~20 lines of sh, grep, cut and Awk: 0x0f0f0f

Some days ago, driven by boredom, I implemented my own Markov chains in Haskell by following this great tutorial. Markov chains can be a way of implementing really fun “dumb” group chat bots, that can generate new random messages that sound realistic based on the previous history of the chat.
