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.

[Lady_Aleena]: I have two sub recurse { my ($directory, $other_var) = @_; my @files = file_list($directo ry); for my $file (@files) { if (-f $file) { do "stuff"; } if (-d $file) { recurse(" $directory/$file" , $other_var); } } } This was when I hated File::Find.
[tobyink]: 1nickt: your code?
[LanX]: pryrt: yeah, that's why I didn't consider, but the last >10 anonymous posts are from the same troll-person
[jdporter]: is there a module for expanding tabs in text?
[jdporter]: A: yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't know how hard it will be to get out of that mess.
[LanX]: M-x untabify
[choroba]: I don't think they're multiple people. I was told "he or she" sounds old-fashioned and "they" is the way to say it
[pryrt]: Those others were definitely offensive or unequivocably rude, I agree.
[choroba]: (well, it comes from the 14th century, so labelling it as "modern" doesn't seem appropriate)
