in reply to Non-Repetitive Random Numbers

This survey of pseudorandom number generators has recommendations. There are many with a wide range of characteristics.

If you need a nice uniform distribution, the Mersenne Twister implementation provided by Math-Random-MT-Perl-1.1 should work. As the notes say, "The algorithm is characterised by a very uniform distribution but is not cryptographically secure."
