digitalmars.D - Announcement: Random names and addresses generator released.

What is it: Tis an app that randomly creates (USA) full names and addresses from
a set of XML files...using a XML config file, and outputs an XML file that can
be imported into a database, to build test personnel data tables.

After of months writing tons of D code toward bring this project forward (only
to use two modules...so far), I'm releasing a commandline version that I've
tested under Windows, but it should also work under Linux since it uses the
Phobos runtime library for file io.
