in thread rand / srand

I strongly suggest Math::Random::MT::Auto for any random number generation work.

The Mersenne Twister is a fast pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) th +at is capable of providing large volumes (> 10^6004) of "high quality +" pseudorandom data to applications that may exhaust available "truly +" random data sources or system-provided PRNGs such as rand.
