NAME
    Text::Lorem::More - Generate formatted nonsense using random Latin
    words.

VERSION
    Version 0.13

SYNOPSIS
    Generate formatted nonsense using random Latin words.

            use Text::Lorem::More;

            my $lorem = Text::Lorem::More->new;
        
            # Greet a friend
            print "Hello, ", $lorem->fullname, "\n";

            # You could also ...
            print $lorem->process("Hello, +fullname\n");

            ... or you can use the singleton:

            use Text::Lorem::More qw(lorem);

            # Generate a random latin word
            my $latinwordoftheday = lorem->word;

            # Produce paragaphs in the Text::Lorem compatible manner
            my $content = lorem->paragraphs(3);

            # Print 4 paragraphs, each separated by a single newline and tab:
            print "\t", scalar lorem->paragraph(4, "\n\t");

GENERATORS
    To use a generator, call the method with the same name as the generator,
    To use the name generator, for example:

            my $name = $lorem->name;

    Alternatively, you can use the "generate" or "process" functions. To use
    the hostname generator, for example:

            my $hostname = $lorem->hostname;

            # This will do the same thing ...
            my $otherhostname = $lorem->generate("+hostname");

  word
    Generates random latin word.

            dicta
            sed
            repellat

  sentence
    Generates between 4 and 9 words, with the first letter of the first word
    capitalized and a period following the last word.

  paragraph
    Generates between 3 and 6 sentences,

  words $count
    A Text::Lorem compatible words generator. Will generate $count words
    joined by " ".

  sentences $count
    A Text::Lorem compatible sentences generator. Will generate $count
    sentences joined by " ". Each sentence contains between 4 and 9 words
    and ends with a period. Passing in 0 for count will still produce a
    single period!

  paragraphs $count
    A Text::Lorem compatible sentences generator. Will generate $count
    paragraphs joined by "\n\n". Each paragraph contains between 3 and 6
    sentences.

  name / firstname / lastname
    Generates a random latin word with the first letter capitalized

            Repellat
            Sed
            Ipsum

  fullname
    Generates a firstname and lastname separated by a space

            Lorem Dicta

  username
    Generates a random latin word

  title
    Generates between 1 and 3 words with the first letter of the first word
    capitalized

  description
    Generates between 1 and 3 sentences.

  tld / topleveldomain
    Generates a top level domain. Currently, this will either be "com",
    "org", or "net".

  domain / domainname
    Generates a domainname. Currently, this will attach "example" to a tld
    generator result.

            example.com
            example.net

  host / hostname
    Generates a hostname. Currently, this will either return a plain
    domainname, as above, or attach a latin word to a domainname result.

            et.example.com
            example.org

  email / mail
  path
  httpurl
  mailto
EXPORT
FUNCTIONS
  new [$source]
    Construct a new Text::Lorem::More object

  generate $pattern [, $count, $separator]
    Generate some text using the specified pattern.

    "generate" is faster than "process", as "generate" uses regex to perform
    substitution.

    In list context, return a list with $count number of "words"

    In scalar context, return $pattern repeated $count times and joined by
    $separator.

    If you do not specify scalar context on the receiving end, then the
    separator will simply be discarded. This may change in the future

    The default for $count is 1.

    The default for $separator is " ".

    A pattern will usually contain one or more generator tokens. For
    example:

            +name
            +fullname
            +word+word+word+word

    The pattern can also contain other text:

            +name@+domainname
            "+firstname +lastname"

    Sometimes you might need to enclose the token identifier between "+{"
    and "}"

    For example, the following pattern won't work right:

            prefix+namesuffix

    But this will:

            prefix+{name}suffix

    If you need to include a '+' in your pattern, you'll have to use
    "process" instead.

  process $text
    Process a block of text, performing pattern substitutions as they're
    found.

    process is slower than generate, as process uses Parse::RecDescent.

    To escape '+', simply repeat it. For example, to produce "2 + 2" you
    would submit:

            2 ++ 2

    Please see "generate" for more information.

  source
    Return the generator source for this instance.

  lorem
    A Text::Lorem::More singleton.
