## SYNOPSIS

**numrandom**[-dhV] /[expression]/

## DESCRIPTION

**numrandom**will print out a random number determined by the expression that you give. The syntax and program is nearly identical to the

**numrange**program, except that

**numrandom**picks a number at random from the range expression. If no expression is specified,

**numrandom**will print out a random integer between 1 and 100. Ranges are inclusive.

## OPTIONS

-h Help: You're looking at it. -V Increase verbosity. -d Debug mode. For developers

## EXAMPLES

Random number from 1 to 10. $ numrandom /1..10/ 7 From 1 to 10 or from 15 to 20. $ numrandom /1..10,15..20/ 16 An even number from 0 to 10 $ numrandom /0..10i2/ 4 An odd number. Notice the starting number in the range. $ numrandom /1..10i2/ 9 A factor of 3 between 99 and 120. $ numrandom /99..120i3/ 111 A decimal number. $ numrandom /1.1..2.5i0.1/ 1.8 A negative random number. $ numrandom /0.0..-2.0i0.3/ -0.8

## BUGS

**numrandom**is slow when dealing with large ranges to randomly find a number from. This is because it creates a list of all potential numbers before picking one. So it can be memory intensive for large ranges.
