koolade's suggestion echoes an approach that has worked well for me. Here's a bit of (slightly verbose) code to illustrate:
sub make_rand_str { my $num_chars = shift; my @possible_chr_array = @_; my $num_possibles = @possible_chr_array; my $rnd_str = ""; for (my $i=$num_chars; $i--;) { $rnd_str .= $possible_chr_array[rand($num_possibles)]; } return $rnd_str; } my $rnd_str = make_rand_str(4, "A".."Z", "0".."9"); my $url = "http://my/host/cgi/$rnd_str",

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.
