108 characters:

Update: Adopted the required counting method, thus I have 108 characters, not 103.

Update 2: New version with 71 characters (however it would be a few (about 4) characters more if I hadn't copied a trick from BrowserUk; I'll elaborate in the spoiler tag):

Caveat: The second version will probably not terminate for a 1-digit code.

Update 3: :-( I just noticed that my 71 character solution has the problem that it always prints "8" as the last digit. For the moment, I offer the following fix, which makes it 75 characters long (and I'll omit the spoiler tags as the contest seems to be over):

-l15e'print|substr$_||=1x($l=pop),~rand$l,1,~~rand 10 while++$A%1e6||- +-$l'

(And you can modify the 1e6 constant to shorten the runtime.)

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.
