cmr72 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello All, I am a newbie. I've been a round PERL for a while but never had to really get down to the nitty gritty of it. I am not a programmer and usually troll around looking for answers. Today I created a random number generator in hopes to pipe the output into a histogram set for plotting in GNUPLOT. While I understand how to generate a hash to tally the points, I am totally lost on creating bins, whether automatically spaced or with an argument from the user. Here is the code that I have so far:
Random number generator:
So if there are values -1, -1.5, -2, 2, 1, 0, 1, I would hope to see the following (if the bin range was between -2:2)
Or something like that... Thanks in advance.
