    there is a MacPerl program posted in 1998 that uses Mac's speech synth
    to sing Daisy Bell.
    See:

    http://bumppo.net/lists/macperl/1998/11/msg00412.html

    can anyone modify it so it runs out of the box on today's OS X?

    PS i'm posting this also in python and lisp group, i hope it'd be some
    general interest. For some background of this song, see
    http://xahlee.org/Periodic_dosage_dir/sanga_pemci/daisy_bell.html

    i'm interested in getting versions that can sing the song in Windows,
    Mac, Linux using whatever speech synth each OS may provide. Thanks.

    Thanks a lot!

    Now it is singing! :) Fantastic.

    it'd be great if i can now dump it as a sound file...
