This is the README file for Data::Random, a Perl module for generating random data.  You might find it helpful mostly in test programs to easily generate pseudo-realistic distributions of data.


The standard perl module install process:

perl Makefile.PL
make test (optional)
make install

The module also uses Date::Calc for rand_date() and rand_datetime(), and GD for rand_image()  (both available on CPAN)
