Online Line Shuffler

I have written a tiny web application that will let you paste in a bunch of lines of text and hit a button, and it will shuffle the lines for you.

It's trivial really; and yet it's a nice timesaver, obviating the need to break out that Perl one-liner that you keep having to Google for.

Tiny tools like this one -- it's a step in the right direction toward the ideal of the URL command line. I wonder if we could somehow expose many of the Unix text tools as tiny web apps. Of course, we'd need a way to pipe the output of one command into another . . .

  • We could call the unix-like URL command line "URLinux". Or maybe that would be confusing.

    URLinux: the command-line of the Web OS.
