       RIG - Random Identity Generator


       rig [ -f | -m ] [ -d datadir ] [ -c num ]


       Rig  is  a  utility that will piece together a random first name, last name, street number
       and address, along with a geographically consistant (ie, they all  match  the  same  area)
       city, state, ZIP code, and area code.

       It is suitable for such applications as feeding the NY times registration page to fend off
       junk (snail) mail and telemarketers, or for registering on BBS's to which you  don't  wish
       to reveal your real information.


       -f, -m Respectively,  use  female and male names. If neither or both options are selected,
              RIG uses both female and male names.

       -d datadir
              Use data files found in datadir. Without this  option,  the  default  directory  of
              /usr/share/rig is assumed.

       -c num Output num identities. Default is 1.
