unsort — reorder lines in a file in semirandom ways
unsort [-hvrpncmMsz0l] [--help] [--version] [--random] [--heuristic] [--identity] [--concatenate] [--merge] [--merge-random] [--seed integer] [--zero-terminated] [--null] [--linefeed] [file ...]
unsort prints the lines in the input files (or standard input) in semi-random order. Available algorithms are a Mersenne Twister based PRNG and a heuristic algorithm that aims to create a subjective even distribution. Command line options -h, --help Display a concise summary of the available options and argument syntax. -v, --version Display version and copyright information. -r, --random Use the Mersenne Twister based randomization algorithm. -p, --heuristic Use the heuristic "shuffling" algorithm which permutes the lines in such a way that they're spread more or less evenly in the output. This is the default. -n, --identity Do not reorder lines in the input. Useful if you just want to merge the files. -r, --concatenate Concatenate all input files then apply the shuffling algorithm to the result as a whole. -m, --merge Shuffle all input files seperately then merge the result. Equal-sized files will be merged in the order in which they appear on the command line. -M, --merge-random Shuffle all input files seperately then merge the result. Equal-sized files will be merged in random order. This is the default. -s, --seed integer Use this integer as a seed, instead of random data from the environment. -z, --zero-terminated, -0, --null Lines are terminated with a \0 character. -l, --linefeed Lines are terminated with a \n character. This is the default.
