Randomize Lines (rl) is a command-line tool that reads lines from an input file or stdin, randomizes the lines and outputs a specified number of lines. It does this with only a single pass over the input while trying to use as little memory as possible.
I wrote rl in my spare time mainly to be able to select a random audio file to play when my toast is done (script in combination with find and sleep). Another reason was to familiarize myself with autoconf and friends.
The most recent version of this page can be found at http://ch.tudelft.nl/~arthur/rl/.
Warning: rl is software in development. The command line options and default behavior may change between releases.
Another Warning: I have mostly lost interest in this project and am not planning on doing much development on it any more. I will however still accept patches and fix important bugs (this more or less contradicts the previous warning).
What's New in This Release:
This release adds a --line-number option to output the line numbers from the input file and fixes the documentation (mainly spelling errors).
