There isn't.

perl -le '(join "", map { (0..9,"a".."z","A".."Z","_")[rand 63] }
0..rand 256)->(); sub AUTOLOAD { print $AUTOLOAD }'

This calls a routine in main:: with a name selected by random every
time. It's trivial to change this to call into other namespaces as
well. If you want find in files, do find in files.
