Monster counts

After a lot of trickery with grep sed and echo and just a touch of javascript I compiled totals for everyone's counts: lines in lore.txt for all the angband user folders on into JSON format suitable for processing.

I've hosted the document here:

If you click the link your browser may try and make it look presentable for you but it will take a minute or two.

The indexes in the totals array for each object correspond to the sequence in which they are outputted to lore.txt, so the same key applies.

It should be noted that this is very raw data, which includes hundreds of hapless newbies who didn't come back, a player notorious for scumming breeders who can volunteer their own name, and Ingwe who really knows what he's doing; those two in particular may skew the results somewhat.

Unfortunately the most exciting part of this, number of time player has been killed by monster, seems to have been dysfunctional in the recording process.

Nonetheless it took a little work to create and surely if anyone is interested this is the place to find them.
