( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks ya'll, I forgot to mention that my hosts needed to be in a list...also the reason I wanted to not require an external call is because the script calling my hosts doesn't belong to me thus I was attempting to make the code simple and not require additional Modules to be installed/called...

After some thought/research I have decided upon the following code as my solution...

#!/usr/bin/perl sub get_hosts { @hosts=("host1.domain.com","host1.domain.com","host1.domain.com","h +ost1.domain.com"); @app = (); while (@hosts) { $rv = int(rand(@hosts)); push @app,$hosts[$rv]; $hosts[$rv] = $hosts[$#hosts]; pop @hosts; } $thosts = "$app[0],$app[1],$app[2],$app[3]"; return $thosts; } print &get_hosts();
Thanks again everyone for your suggestions...

Danny

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
