in reply to Bug in List::Util::shuffle ?

You're shuffling a one-element list containing an array reference, then dereferencing that. A one-element list has only one possible order.

Try this instead:

perl -e 'use List::Util qw(shuffle); @a=(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10); foreac +h (1..24) { print join(",",shuffle(@a) )."\n"}'
