masi@masi:~$ require 'ffaker'

masi@masi:~$ sudo ffaker
sudo: ffaker: command not found

Start the Interactive Ruby Shell , then run the command:

irb(main):001:0> require 'ffaker'
=> true

There is an example from the git repository :

irb(main):001:0> require 'ffaker'
=> true
irb(main):002:0> FFaker::Name.name
=> "Danyelle Langosh"
irb(main):003:0> FFaker::Internet.email
=> "kristle.kiehn@senger.name"
  • Do you know any minimal examples about how to generate fake data with the package? I want to test that it really works. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Jul 29 '17 at 11:11

    there is an example here , run cpan Data::Faker , create your sample.pl with the content of the synopsis then run perl sample.pl – GAD3R Jul 29 '17 at 12:13
  • What is the typical configuration for cpan installation? Options (Choose 'local::lib', 'sudo' or 'manual'). Sudo ok? – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Aug 1 '17 at 14:08
