jot (BSD)

Jot is used to print out increasing, decreasing, random, or redundant data, usually numbers, one per line. It can be used to generate randomness fitting a certain pattern (eg, a random IP address) or number sequences (useful in shell programming). It is often distributed together with lam and rs, sometimes under the name bsd-utils.

    Compiling
    The download link is to a source RPM package built at MIT. Unpack it with rpm -Uvh or unarc (/projects/unarc/) and you'll find a source tarball you can build. The RPM spec files themselves are Athena-specific.
