Databug is a PHP class that is able to generate random data sets from sample 
data. It is especially useful for testing PHP scripts and applications under 
development.  It has been specifically designed to use flat data files and not
require a database connection.

The data generated by this class is currently oriented toward developers in the 
United States.  (For instance, the default profile generator includes a zip code 
element.)  But the class's underlying methods should be able to be easily adapted
to various other national and international data types when primed with the appropriate 
public data sources.

An online demo of the script is available at:
