  • Generating limited amount of random numbers in Perl for a known range

    Hi!
    I am a newbie in here and wanted to ask a question that I am not able to find its answer. I have a file which has couple letters as :
    letters.txt :
    @string1 10 letters
    A H K Y M H O L H L
    @string2 9 letters
    H N U P W X L Y H
    I am trying to create a file which will only have random numbers from 20 to 60 for each letter, for each string.
    My expected output should look like :
    output.txt:
    @string1
    29 27 56 43 39 40 36 48 59 38
    @sting2
    26 36 39 39 26 51 38 42 42

    I have tried this code below:
    open ($fh, '>', $fileToLocate) or die;
    my $x = $minimum + int(rand($maximum - $minimum);
    print $fh "$x\n";
    close $fh;

    And it creates only 1 random number in my $fh file, however I want to extract the number of letters in each string (written just before "letter" in identifier) and create a loop which will give the expected output. I have tried to this below to create 30 random numbers ranging between 20 and 60, however it did not work out :
    my $x = join("", $minimum + int(rand($maximum - $minimum), ( 1 .. 30 ) );
    my @Chars = ( 20 .. 60);


    I am sorry if it is too much to ask, but I would very much appreciate if you show me a way to do it.

    Thank you so much in advance..
