A Lorem Ipsum Generator

Description

Generates (pseudo)random lorem ipsum text consisting of a given number of text paragraphs.

Usage

stri_rand_lipsum(nparagraphs, start_lipsum = TRUE)

Arguments

nparagraphs

single integer, number of paragraphs to generate

start_lipsum

single logical value; should the resulting text start with Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet?

Details

Lorem ipsum is a dummy text often used as a source of data for string processing and displaying/layouting exercises.

Current implementation is very simple: words are selected randomly from a Zipf distribution (we base on a set of ca. 190 predefined Latin words). Number of words per sentence and sentences per paragraph follows a discretized, truncated normal distribution. No Markov chain modeling, just i.i.d. word selection.

Value

Returns a character vector of length nparagraphs.

   stri_wrap(stri_rand_lipsum(10), 80, simplify=FALSE),
   stri_flatten, collapse="\n"), sep="\n\n")
cat(stri_rand_lipsum(10), sep="\n\n")
