The fortune program is a small but important part of the
Unix culture, and this module aims to provide support for
its "fortune cookie" databases to Perl programmers.
For efficiency, all versions of fortune rely on a binary
header consisting mainly of offsets into the fortune file
Modern versions of fortune keep this header in a
separate file, and this is the style adopted by the
Fortune module; the older style of munging the header and
data into one large "compiled" file is not (currently)
