in reply to getting random number 8 times never the same

You could try something like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper::Simple; use List::Util qw/shuffle/; my @nums = (4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20); my @shuffled_nums = shuffle(@nums); my %extracted_nums; for (0 .. 7) { $extracted_nums{$_} = shift @shuffled_nums; } print Dumper(%extracted_nums); print Dumper(@shuffled_nums);
%extracted_nums will contain the numbers removed from the original list, and @shuffled_nums will contain those left over.

Is that what you wanted?

Cheers,
Darren
