in reply to Random string generator

Thanks to jmcnamara, we have this example:

perl -le 'print map{(a..z)[rand 26]} 0..rand 10'

which I have extended thusly:

perl -le 'print map{(a..z,A..Z,0..9)[rand 62]} 0..7'

and which you could extend as needed.

    For use in a function which is much easier to remember.
    print randStr(8)."\n"; sub randStr { return join('', map{('a'..'z','A'..'Z',0..9)[rand 62]} 0..shift); }

[Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
[Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
[Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
[Discipulus]: see you monks!
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, let me get this sub rewritten, then I will look into how to use ctags in geany. Deal? 8)
[shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
