in thread Remove lowest number

Sadly this was done because I couldn't figure out a way to reroll 1s.

(you can see it but I filled with shame)

There's more than one way to do it, but only some of them actually work.

    my $onetosix = int(rand(6) + 1);

    rand will take its argument, and return a number somewhere between 0 and n-1 (0 -> 5 in this case). Actually it will return, though I'm not sure to what decimal depth, a random fractional number (0.0* -> 5.9*). Applying int() to the result causes it to round the fractional to a whole number. Then we add one.

    use perl;
