in reply to Random numbers are not random enough on Windows
every random number generated was unique. This was expected.
I had a stats teacher that would have everyone write down a coin flip sequence and then he'd explain how he could tell who cheated: not enough repeats. I guess I'd expect to see a few repeats in my sequence of random numbers. Probably not as many as you're seeing... I think there are other problems with the windows PRNG too. Maybe win7 fixed it.
I guess I expected to find some things on CPAN for this, but I didn't -- unless you're willing to use cygwin. Then there seem to be a few choices. Crypt::Random (will this work without the entropy daemon?) and Math::Random::MT::Auto (should I be using this too?) seem fairly interesting.
UPDATE: Ahh, interesting. I didn't understand the issue at all.
