in reply to How to generate test data?


I don't see anything immediately wrong. But I'll make a couple of suggestions:

  • You can use a simpler version of for:
    for (1 .. $array_size) { my $andom_number = int(rand($range)); print DATASET $random_number; }
  • Do you need to keep the data around for later? If not, then I'd skip putting the numbers in a file.


When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

    Thank you for your suggestions. Yes, I should write the data into a file.
