Are you sure? It's working for me with only a small bias towards the Zs

Update: Apparently, the observed bias was mostly an artifact of small sample size

    On a linux 2.4.9 box running perl 5.6.0 perl /tmp/a /usr/share/dict/words 1 yields such things as:

    perl -pe "s/\b;([st])/'\1/mg"

      I can't duplicate your problem. It should be impossible since $ARGV[0]-@lines would be negative while rand($line-$.) is positive.
        heh heh heh, woops. just re-rechecked and it seems I somehow managed to merge the top of yours with the bottom (while) of mine. Doh!
