Here's what the Cookbook offers for randomizing arrays:
<br><br># fisher_yates_shuffle( \@array ) : generate a random permutat +ion # of @array in place sub fisher_yates_shuffle { my $array = shift; my $i; for ($i = @$array; --$i; ) { my $j = int rand ($i+1); next if $i == $j; @$array[$i,$j] = @$array[$j,$i]; } } fisher_yates_shuffle( \@array ); # permutes @array in place
