I have a very simple program/piece of software in mind, but I don't know if it exists or - if it does - how to search for it.
I see this being used as a tool for creative writing or improv exercises or for any sort of random generation.
In creating a page/file/document one would
(1) set the number of sequential text boxes,
(2) label each box,
(3) and provide a list of possible entries for each box.
Then after this is set up, upon hitting a button, each text box would be randomly filled with an entry from its respective list. And this can be repeated.
For example, in "people in places doing things" we could have 3 boxes: "profession", "location", and "activity". And after loading in appropriate lists to each of the boxes we might generate "Lion tamer - gym - swimming" or "police constable - post office - arguing", and so on.
What is this sort of program called - if anything? Does it exist (in Windows)?
This could be something incredibly bare-bones and basic. I imagine there might be something like this related to study programs, where one can randomly generate practice questions, French vocab to learn, etc.
