SYNOPSISrandtype [ -l ] [ -d ,|.<string> [ -k ] ] [ -t <ms,mult> ] [ -w <string> [ -c ms,mult ] ] [ -r s1,s2[:...] ] [ -n <string> ] [ -q <int> ] [ -m <int> ] [ file ... ]
randtype reads input from either standard input or from a file and outputs each character or line at random intervals. If multiple files are specified, each is read in sequence.
randtype recognizes the following command line options:
- -c ms,mult
- For optional use with the -w option, this has the same microsecond and multiplier value format as the -t option. The default for this option is specified at compile time.
- -d string
- Output everything before (left) or after (right) the specified string immediately. The string must begin with either ',' or '.' which specifies the direction, left or right, respectively.
- Print a summary of the command line options and exit.
- Suppress output of the string specified by the dump string option.
- Output lines rather than characters. Only the -t and -q options are valid when using this option, all other options are ignored.
- -m int
- Generate random mistakes. The int value is how many times to compare and match the next character and a randomly generated character.
- -n chars
- Output the specified characters immediately with no random waiting.
- -r s1,s2[:...]
- Replace the string s1 with string s2. You can specify multiple replacements by separating them with a ':'.
- -q int
- Quit the program after this many seconds.
- -t ms,mult
- This option refines the random delay of output. The value of the argument is separated by a comma with the first argument being a microsecond and the second being a multiplier of a random number between 0 and the microsecond. A character-per-second effect can, for example, be made by setting the microsecond to 0 and the multiplier to 1000000. The default for this option is specified at compile time.
- Display version information and exit.
- -w chars
The inverse of the -n option; this option waits on the specified
characters. Use the -c option to refine the random delay of output.
