        Thanks to those who took the time to answer my question, here comes
the summary:

>From Dave Hughes @att and Michael "Crash" Bukva @Fujitsu Australia and Frank G
    The Korn Shell, /bin/ksh, automatically sets a variable called
    $RANDOM which is a random number.

>From Gary Parker @Johnson & Johnson:
    perl -e 'printf("%.",rand(srand(time()))*100)'

>From Peter Allan in UK:
    A book in Numerical Recipies series. Well, This is too much for me
    but thanks anyway.

Many Thanks,
