Generate 1000 random words using UNIX

8 Oct, 2010 - 2 minutes
I need 1000 random words in non-alphabetical order, don’t ask why… I just do. So after looking though the ‘bin’ folder for a program that might generate these words and found nothing, I decided to head to the internet. This is where I found out about the ‘words’ file which is located in ‘/usr/dict/words’ this file is used for things like spell checking. Now this contains many many words. This is what I was looking for!
