Re^5: Predictable random sequenceby BrowserUk (Pope)

Hm. Intriguing. It seems that the Windows versions are doing the 'right thing'. Ie. ignoring the argument when you call rand and returning a random float 'tween 0 .. 1.
To get the equivalent behaviour of the built-in rand where the random float is multiplied by the argument, you need to import the function irand().
I cannot see by inspection why (or even how) you get different behaviour on linux?
It seems it should do the same thing as the Windows install:
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
