    Adaptation of http://www.masswerk.at/elizabot/ eliza chat bot to node.js command line app.

    elizabot.js v.1.1 - ELIZA JS library (N.Landsteiner 2005) Eliza is a mock Rogerian psychotherapist. Original program by Joseph Weizenbaum in MAD-SLIP for "Project MAC" at MIT. cf: Weizenbaum, Joseph "ELIZA - A Computer Program For the Study of Natural Language Communication Between Man and Machine" in: Communications of the ACM; Volume 9 , Issue 1 (January 1966): p 36-45. JavaScript implementation by Norbert Landsteiner 2005; http://www.masserk.at

    synopsis:

    new ElizaBot( <random-choice-disable-flag> )
    ElizaBot.prototype.transform( <inputstring> )
    ElizaBot.prototype.getInitial()
    ElizaBot.prototype.getFinal()
    ElizaBot.prototype.reset()
    

    usage:

    var eliza = new ElizaBot();
    var initial = eliza.getInitial();
    var reply = eliza.transform(inputstring);
    if (eliza.quit) {
    	// last user input was a quit phrase
    }
    
    // method `transform()' returns a final phrase in case of a quit phrase
    // but you can also get a final phrase with:
    var final = eliza.getFinal();
    
    // other methods: reset memory and internal state
    eliza.reset();
    
    // to set the internal memory size override property `memSize':
    eliza.memSize = 100; // (default: 20)
    
    // to reproduce the example conversation given by J. Weizenbaum
    // initialize with the optional random-choice-disable flag
    var originalEliza = new ElizaBot(true);
    

    ElizaBot is also a general chatbot engine that can be supplied with any rule set. (for required data structures cf. "elizadata.js" and/or see the documentation.) data is parsed and transformed for internal use at the creation time of the first instance of the `ElizaBot' constructor.

    vers 1.1: lambda functions in RegExps are currently a problem with too many browsers. changed code to work around.
