dr_permutate - print randomly permutated arguments or stdin
dr_permutate arguments dr_permutate
When called with arguments, dr_permutate returns its arguments in randomly permutated order, space separated. When called without any arguments, dr_permuate expects a line- oriented file on stdin. It returns the contents of this file, with lines randomly permutated.
Running $ dr_permutate foo bar baz could return bar foo baz . Running $ cat <<EOF | dr_permutate foo bar baz could return bar foo baz .

When called without any arguments, stdin is read in core entirely. The GNU coreutils utility shuf(1) implements the same functionality in a better way, you're probably better off using that.
