thanks shmem and all

In effect this sounds the wiser thing to do. I have modified my .t file to just emit a warning via diag

my $tenk; $tenk += 1 + int( rand(6) ) for 1..10000; my $avg = $tenk/10000; # $avg = 5; # uncomment this line to provoke the warning if ( ($avg < 3.4) or ($avg > 3.6) ){ diag("\n\n\nPROBLEM: you got an average of $avg while was expected + a value > 3.4 and < 3.6\n\n\n". "The average was made on 10000 results.\n". "This can happen in old Perl distribution on some platform +.\n". "In future distributions of this module you might be able +to load a different random number generator\n\n\n\n") } else{ ok ( $avg > 3.4, "average randomness ok (10000d6 / 10000 > 3.4)" ) +; ok ( $avg < 3.6, "average randomness ok (10000d6 / 10000 < 3.6)" ) +; }


UPDATE nothing critical nor crucial: I'm just started a little project just to clean my rusty hands: it was a long time (for me) without coding :)
