But what does that mean?Essentially, we want to create a table of words or “strings” from which the bot will move along and generate text from. We will put our source text into a tabled format and then have our bot move along the cells this text occupies to select the text and append it to the string of words we will have it post. This is better explained with some visuals and tables.
Selection by RowYou can have your bot select text by either moving along the rows of text or the columns. We’ll start with an example table for selection by row, and show an example table for selection by column later.
|robin sings||fox shouts||bull exclaims||frog bellows|
|the song||a tale||a story||the history||a remembrance|
|a lost love.||the last cookie.||a joyous day.||a rainy afternoon.|
Selection by ColumnsSelection by columns works the same as selection by row, only instead of moving through rows, the bot will move through columns. Let’s look at an example:
|The plums||grow||on the||long||branch.|
