This… is wrong tool; never use this.

This was more a challenge than a solution to some need:


while read l && read n <&3 ; do
    echo $n "$l"
done 3< <(hexdump -v -e '/4 "%u\n"' < /dev/urandom) | 
    sort -n | cut -d' ' -f2-

No, this collection does not include the sleek smiley cutie from the Makudonarudo song, Meu Ninomiya. Shame about that, but her gravure portfolio is rather slim. One of her movies has been subtitled and made available on Amazon Prime Video, though.


Yeah, it’s like that…
