( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I would skip the duplication and the exporting of functions, something like this:

package Rand; use strict; use warnings; sub _random { my @values = @_; return $values[rand @values]; } sub day_part { return _random(qw(morning evening afternoon night)); } sub light { return _random(qw(bright dark gloomy dazzling)); } sub weather { return _random(qw(stormy windy rainy calm)); } sub tense { return _random('was', 'is', 'will be'); } 1;

and the example code would look like this:
use strict; use warnings; use Rand; my $random_day_part = Rand::day_part; my $random_light = Rand::light; my $random_weather = Rand::weather; my $random_tense = Rand::tense; print "It $random_tense a $random_light and $random_weather $random_da +y_part."
