in reply to Re^2: Random generator fail
in thread Random generator fail

forgot to add this:

perl -wle "use 5.10.0; say int foreach (1..100) ;"

Works as rand() should have.

    Either your assumptions are wrong, or the documentation for rand does not match the implementation. Which do you think it is?

[thezip]: G'day all!
[perldigious]: Well, that and dodging the people who forget how ice works right away. :-)
[stevieb]: hey, thezip
[perldigious]: I don't miss having to drive up and down in elevation on roads that are iced over, I white knuckled gripping the steering wheel every time I had to where I used to live.
[perldigious]: So I don't envy you mountain guys if you have to drive in the winter, even with tire chains.
MidLifeXis waves.
[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
