- range is the number of unique numbers to choose from
Generates a random number, from a minimum of 0 to a maximum of range-1. Note that this function aborts with an error if you attempt to supply 1 for range (not that a number between 0 and 0 is all that random).
Mimics the effects of rolling 2d6 (two standard 6-sided dice to you non-gamer-geeks).
int die1 = 1 + random(6); int die2 = 1 + random(6); print( "You rolled a " + die1 + " and a " + die2 + ", for a total of " + to_string(die1+die2) );
