Something not conceptually right. The entity suffers from this problem (if that article you mentioned is right) is: the algorithm that used to generate random numbers, not the language.

The laguage is only loosely related to this problem, as whether you picked a good algorithm. Impletation is also not related here, as you may have a bad implementation that suffers from performance issues, but an implementation (if it truely follows the algorithm) does not usually alter the characteristic of the algorithm. Especially for something like generating random numbers, the implementation most likely already have been refined again and again...

From Perl's point of view, it makes sense for perl to call c function to do this kind of stuff, but not doing it itself. That's not what Perl is targeted for.

    [Discipulus]: uh no choroba.. i do not practice much with online putyour image sites:can you suggest one (that possibly remove the pic after few days)?
    [choroba]: Corion a bug report?
    [choroba]: I have no idea :-( I used to post to photobucket.com, but they don't seem to feature "private" pictures in the free version now
    [Discipulus]: dazz i'm not an experts but i think it would be possible
    [Corion]: dazz: I think Image::Magick can "read" from an in-memory filehandle
    [Corion]: choroba: No, some general admin discussion of how to handle (company) user accounts
    [Discipulus]: might be it is necessary to pass the pic data like MIME::Base64:: encode( data..
    [Discipulus]: if you have a jpeg data: or as wise Corion said IM ca n read directly your handle
