Direc­tory tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/randtext

The package "randtext.sty", which supersedes "switcheml.sty", provides a 
single macro \randomize{TEXT} that typesets the characters of TEXT in 
random order, such that the resulting output appears correct, but most 
automated attempts to read the file will misunderstand it.

This function allows one to include an email address on a TeX document 
and publish it online without fear of email address harvesters or 
spammers easily picking up the address.

For more information, please read the comments at the top of the package 
file.

rand­text – Ran­domise the or­der of char­ac­ters in strings

The pack­age pro­vides a sin­gle macro \ran­dom­ize{TEXT} that type­sets the char­ac­ters of TEXT in ran­dom or­der, such that the re­sult­ing out­put ap­pears cor­rect, but most au­to­mated at­tempts to read the file will mis­un­der­stand it.

This func­tion al­lows one to in­clude an email ad­dress in a TeX doc­u­ment and pub­lish it on­line with­out fear of email ad­dress har­vesters or spam­mers eas­ily pick­ing up the ad­dress.
