Random File Generator

I created this to assist with an experiment where I was comparing file parsing performance between Rust, Python, Node, and Bun.

You may find it useful.

Basic Usage

By default, if no line number is defined, 1000 lines of 8 character Alphanumeric strings are generated. I may add some verbose output in the future.
