randint

Returns pseudo-random random integer number between a given range.

The first argument specifies the start of the range and must have a value less than the second argument when specifies the end of the range. The start is inclusive and the end is exclusive, for example: randint(0, 2) will return either 0 or 1.

Do not use randint() when the purpose is security related since the linear congruential algorithms used by this function is too easy to break.

This function does not generate an event.

Function

Arguments

Argument Type Description

A pseudo-random int between start (inclusive) and end (exclusive).

Example

Some examples on how randint(..) can be used:

// Return a pseudo-random number between 10 (inclusive) and 20 (exclusive)
randint(10, 20);
