NAME
    Acme::CPANModules::PickingRandomItemsFromList - Picking random items
    from a list

VERSION
    This document describes version 0.002 of
    Acme::CPANModules::PickingRandomItemsFromList (from Perl distribution
    Acme-CPANModules-PickingRandomItemsFromList), released on 2021-09-18.

DESCRIPTION
    If you are picking random lines from a file, there's a separate
    CPANModules list for it: Acme::CPANModules::PickingRandomLinesFromFile.

    If you want to allow duplicates, you can repeatedly pick random elements
    from an array using the $ary[rand @ary] idiom.

    If you do not want to allow duplicates:

    List::Util (from version 1.54, 2020-02-02) provides "sample()". If you
    use an older version, you can use "shuffle()" then get as many number of
    samples as you need using slice (@shuffled[0..$num_wanted-1]) or
    "head()".

    List::MoreUtils provides "samples()".

    Keywords: sample, sampling.

FAQ
  What is an Acme::CPANModules::* module?
    An Acme::CPANModules::* module, like this module, contains just a list
    of module names that share a common characteristics. It is a way to
    categorize modules and document CPAN. See Acme::CPANModules for more
    details.

  What are ways to use this Acme::CPANModules module?
    Aside from reading this Acme::CPANModules module's POD documentation,
    you can install all the listed modules (entries) using cpanm-cpanmodules
    script (from App::cpanm::cpanmodules distribution):

     % cpanm-cpanmodules -n PickingRandomItemsFromList

    Alternatively you can use the cpanmodules CLI (from App::cpanmodules
    distribution):

        % cpanmodules ls-entries PickingRandomItemsFromList | cpanm -n

    or Acme::CM::Get:

        % perl -MAcme::CM::Get=PickingRandomItemsFromList -E'say $_->{module} for @{ $LIST->{entries} }' | cpanm -n

    or directly:

        % perl -MAcme::CPANModules::PickingRandomItemsFromList -E'say $_->{module} for @{ $Acme::CPANModules::PickingRandomItemsFromList::LIST->{entries} }' | cpanm -n

    This Acme::CPANModules module also helps lcpan produce a more meaningful
    result for "lcpan related-mods" command when it comes to finding related
    modules for the modules listed in this Acme::CPANModules module. See
    App::lcpan::Cmd::related_mods for more details on how "related modules"

CONTRIBUTING
    To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull
    requests on GitHub.

    Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You
    can simply modify the code, then test via:

     % prove -l

    If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally
    on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla,
    Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two
    other Dist::Zilla plugin and/or Pod::Weaver::Plugin. Any additional
    steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to
    me.
