\section{Standard Module \sectcode{whrandom}}

\stmodindex{whrandom}
This module implements a Wichmann-Hill pseudo-random number generator.
It defines the following functions:

\renewcommand{\indexsubitem}{(in module whrandom)}
\begin{funcdesc}{random}{}
Returns the next random floating point number in the range [0.0 ... 1.0).
\end{funcdesc}

\begin{funcdesc}{seed}{x\, y\, z}
Initializes the random number generator from the integers
\var{x},
\var{y}
and
\var{z}.
When the module is first imported, the random number is initialized
using values derived from the current time.
\end{funcdesc}
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
