    Is that integer range "between 1 and 3" inclusive or exclusive? You might want to include some error-checking:
    { print "Pick an integer between 1 and 3 (exclusive):" $mynum1 = <STDIN>; (print "Follow instructions!\n"),redo unless ($mynum < 3) and ($mynum > 1) and ($mynum == int($mynum)); }
      1 2 3
        ^
        |_ between
      

      Cheers,

        So you are saying that when the state lottery instructions say "choose 6 numbers between 1 and 48", and the winning numbers are 1,4,17,24,36, and 48, then -nobody- should have won?

        "Between 1 and 3" is ambiguous in (American) English, with the most common meaning being inclusive.
