Once upon a time, there were a programming language named Tiger, and nobody used it. Then some stupid student though 'lets write a clone of cowsay'. And that is how I was born

An implementation of the classic Perl program cowsay in the Tiger programming language from the Modern Compiler Implementation in ML/C/Java books.

Written in November 2017, mostly for the kicks, but also for testing my group's Tiger-compiler.

The framework we're using does not allow us to parse commandline-arguments, so the only way to interact with tigersay is to pipe into the compiled program. For example echo "Grrrrr" | tigersay. For the same reasons it does not support alternative faces.
