RND Function Details
Syntax
RND[(n)]
The value of n determines how RND generates the next random number:
Argument Number Returned
n < 0 Always returns the same number for any given n
0 or n omitted Returns the next random number in the sequence
n = 0 Returns the last number generated
Even if n>0, the same sequence of random numbers is generated each
time the program is run unless you initialize the random-number
generator each time you run the program. (See the RANDOMIZE
statement for more information about initializing the random-number
generator.)
To produce random integers in a given range, use the formula
INT ((upperbound - lowerbound + 1)*RND + lowerbound)
where upperbound is the highest number in the range, and lowerbound
is the lowest number in the range.
