Creating a 100x100 grid in perl

Can't Post


Hey everyone! I'm writing code for an epidemiology class in which I'm supposed to have a random walker take 100 steps and determine the probability that it will become infected by walking over a contaminant. The grid on which the walker walks is 100x100. The walker is to begin at a random location on the grid. My partner has done the bulk of the work so I'm trying to finish it up but I just can't seem to figure out how to limit the grid size. How do I make it so that the walker will either not make a move if the step would land it outside of the grid, or roll it over the other other side of the grid if it steps over the border? Please don't think I'm asking you to do my work for me. I want to learn how to do this as I may use this again in the future. Thank you so much!
