Easter egg, maybe


#1

hi i was going around the processing-3.4 files and i found two e-books , frankenstein and dracula in the folder
…\Desktop\processing-3.4\modes\java\examples\Topics\Advanced Data\HashMapClass\data
is this a well known thing or like an obscure reff?


#2

Thats actually not an easteregg, it is a file example originating from the respective books.


#3

ok thx i was realy wondering what it was

In your Processing editor, go to File -> Examples... -> Topics -> Advanced Data -> HashMapClass to open up an example sketch.

This sketch contains code that reads in the files you’ve mentioned to create a visualization of the words in those books.

That’s why the books come with Processing.
