in reply to Random generator fail

Here's my $0.02 worth:

$ perl -E 'say 1 + int rand 99 for 1..3' 28 94 43

Obviously, change the 3 to 100.

Update: You appear to want decimals although you asked for a range using integers. Perhaps you could clarify.

This gives: 1.0 < random_number < 99.0

$ perl -E 'say 1 + rand 98 for 1..3' 38.6240726329874 72.0054041794683 94.0423383452302

[stevieb]: absolutely. Free professional IDEs and related software for all the langs I write in, and I wanted CLion because it's a C IDE that can communicate directly with an Arduino
