Error script not giving the desired output


I have a script in which an entry like this .....


The script connects to an ATM and pull a pic file from it.The format for the file is like PIC_2008061400000001.JPG in the ATM.

Means 1st 8 digit is the date(YYYYMMDD) field
2nd 8 digit means hrs min sec millsec
I want only one or two random pic files with in a particular time.

But the above entry can't pick a picfile and i can't give any random name in script.So i give the entry like above. Serve inwhich i wrote this script is an AIX server.

Here's a crufty way to select a random file in a directory:
$ ls | sort -R | sed '1!d'

I'm using gnu's sort (Ubuntu). Good luck!
