While still supported for compatibility, the \code{rand} module is now considered obsolete; if possible, use the \code{whrandom} module instead. \renewcommand{\indexsubitem}{(in module rand)} \begin{funcdesc}{choice}{seq} Returns a random element from the sequence \var{seq}. \end{funcdesc} \begin{funcdesc}{rand}{} Return a random integer between 0 and 32767, inclusive. \end{funcdesc} \begin{funcdesc}{srand}{seed} Set a starting seed value for the random number generator; \var{seed} can be an arbitrary integer. \end{funcdesc} \begin{seealso} \seemodule{whrandom}{the standard Python random number generator} \end{seealso} 
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.
