Greetings Fellow Monk!

Here is yet another way to do what you are asking for using the CPAN Module Math::Random.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Math::Random; my($n,$low,$high)=(100,250,500); my @array=random_uniform_integer($n,$low,$high); for(my $i=0; $i<$n; $i++){print "$array[$i]\n";}
$n is the number of random numbers you wish to generate,
$low is the lower limit, $high is the upper limit, and
@array is the array containing your random numbers as specified by your lower and upper limits.

The beauty of Perl, The Perl Community, and CPAN is that there is usually a module out there that will do just about anything you are looking for often times significantly reducing the amount of code you need to write.
