Friday Golf: All 2-digit combinations

The string posted doesn't meat the needs. Here's what I've got (84 chars):

`sub checker
{
my ($str) = @_;
for ('00' .. '99')
{
my $n = 0;
$n++ while $str =~ /$_/g;
die "'$_' appears $n times\n" if $n != 1;
}
}
sub generate
{
0 1 2 3 4 5 6
+ 7 8
#012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678
+90123456789012345
for$x(0..9){for$y(0..9){/$x$y/||(/^$y/and$_="$x$_")||(/$x$/and$_.=$y)
+or$_.="$x$y"}}$_
}
print "Generating ...\n";
my $test = generate();
print "$test\n";
print "Checking ...\n";
checker($test);
print "Ok\n";

I know it can be improved ...
