The Chuck Norris library

The Chuck Norris library is written in C++ and contains a class able to give you random Chuck Norris facts when the getFact() method is called:

Here’s how to use it:

#include <ChuckNorris.hpp>

ChuckNorris chuckNorris;
std::string fact = chuckNorris.getFact();

You will find all the source code on GitHub.
