Hi All

Need to generate a random 6 digits number to uniquley be used to identify temporary file name. The shell script I'm writing would be fired from other shells using the . command.

So the $$ is coming the same for all consecutive runs. I need to generate this number to have it as a unique identifier for my run!!
