in reply to Randomise a string of letters

Using the "Randomizing an Array" example from the Perl Cookbook, I threw together the following code. Does this help?
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $gStr='This is my string'; my @gStrArr=split('',$gStr); sub fisher_yates_shuffle { my $array = shift; my $i; for ($i = @$array; --$i;) { my $j = int rand ($i+1); next if $i == $j; @$array[$i,$j] = @$array[$j,$i]; } } fisher_yates_shuffle(\@gStrArr); $gStr=join('',@gStrArr); print $gStr,"\n";

[Tanktalus]: Lady_Aleena: yeah, I can reproduce your issue, it's confusing alright :)
[Tanktalus]: I'm sure it'll make perfect sense once we figure it out :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, not a quoting error. I can't run it on the command line. It is when I put it in qx() where it falls apart.

[Discipulus]: wow praha!
[Tanktalus]: choroba: do I have to move? :)
Discipulus has too much roots in a 2770 yo town
[marioroy]: I want a job after completing MCE in about a week. But feel that I've moved to the wrong place.
[choroba]: I fear so. We have offices in Prague, Brno, Saigon and San Francisco.
