Return Value

TypeDescription
boolean

A random boolean

function randomFloat()[link]

Generates a random floating point decimal number from 0 up to (but not including) 1.

function randomInt(minInclOrMax, optionalMax)[link]

Generates a random integer within the given range. There are two ways randomInt can be called. When called with one parameter, it will generate a random number from 0 up to the number you provide (exclusive) i.e. if you call randomInt(10), you will get numbers from 0 through 9, but not 10 itself. When called with two parameters, it will generate a random number from the first number (inclusive) to the second number (exclusive) i.e. if you call randomInt(5, 10), you will get numbers from 5 through 9, but not 10 itself (but it may be 5).
