Make a random IP address in Perl

This Perl script makes reasonably convincing random IPv4 internet addresses.

#!/home/ben/software/install/bin/perl
use warnings;
use strict;
sub randomip
{
    my @digits;
    for (0..3) {
        push @digits, int (rand (255) + 1);
    }
    return join '.', @digits;
}
for (0..9) {
    print randomip (), "\n";
}

The output looks like this:

230.241.131.133
85.43.133.14
120.13.10.254
204.89.31.1
25.69.101.33
44.1.66.198
129.221.210.21
99.202.149.38
24.181.91.188
17.149.61.201
