       shuf - generate random permutations


       shuf [OPTION]... [FILE]
       shuf -e [OPTION]... [ARG]...
       shuf -i LO-HI [OPTION]...


       Write a random permutation of the input lines to standard output.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -e, --echo
              treat each ARG as an input line

       -i, --input-range=LO-HI
              treat each number LO through HI as an input line

       -n, --head-count=COUNT
              output at most COUNT lines

       -o, --output=FILE
              write result to FILE instead of standard output

              get random bytes from FILE

       -z, --zero-terminated
              end lines with 0 byte, not newline

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
