README

I inherited, cleaned up, and packaged display-dhammapada for Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora.

This program displays random verses from the English, German, or Polish translations of the
Dhammapada, a "versified Buddhist scripture traditionally ascribed to the Buddha himself".
(from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhammapada).

As this program works similarly to fortune, one may use it in shell profiles or
signature generators, among others.
