       randtype - Output characters or lines at random intervals


       randtype  [ -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

       -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.

       -h     Print a summary of the command line options and exit.

       -k     Suppress output of the string specified by the dump string option.

       -l     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.

       -v     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.
