        When I run a perl script that uses math:random, I get the following:

This machine is a 4.10-RELEASE, with perl, version 5.005_03.  But I am
getting this on several machines running different versions of FreeBSD
with different perl versions as well.

How do I fix this?  Searched online a lot, but no resolution.  Thanks
much for any help on fixing this,

You need to install the appropriate perl module - in this case Math::Random.

FreeBSD ports contain many of the perl modules. Most are in the format p5-Foo-Bar. To find them, go to /usr/ports and type "make search key=Math-Random" (for example.)

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ls /usr/ports/math/p5-Math-Random
p5-Math-Random/ p5-Math-Random-MT/ p5-Math-Random-MT-Auto/ p5-Math-Random-OO/ p5-Math-RandomOrg/

So, cd to /usr/ports/math/p5-Math-Random, make install clean and your problem will be solved.
