  Description     : Perl module for generating meaningless filler text

 Greeking is the use of random letters or marks to show the overall
 appearance of a printed page without showing the actual text. Greeking
 is used to make it easy to judge the overall appearance of a document
 without being distracted by the meaning of the text.
 This is a module is for quickly generating varying meaningless text from
 any source to create this illusion of the content in systems.
 This module was created to quickly give developers simulated content to
 fill systems with simulated content. Instead of static Lorem Ipsum text,
 by using randomly generated text and optionally varying word sources,
 repetitive and monotonous patterns that do not represent real system
 usage is avoided.
