HELLO ALL I am looking for a formula or method which takes our required minimum & maximum range and will return numbers within our specified range using Math.random().Possible signature of such method is like this,
Is this thing is presented by some author.? Best Regards, Hassan! [ December 22, 2002: Message edited by: Hassan Marzooq ]
hi Hassan, i really don't see a problem you are facing. do you want to know how you can generate random numbers between the number range you provide? if thats the case then try the following code,
modify this to your needs... if this was not the problem then please clarify more to us... regards maulin
HELLO. Exactly for the same code i was looking for.But i am amazed that why any author didn't mention the same technique.Anyway, thanks for sharing code. Best Regards, Hassan.
Note that the code given by Maulin will never return the specified maximum value, because the number returned by Math.random() will always be less than 1, and int arithmetic rounds down for positive numbers. E.g. if min is 1 and max is 6, the largest value you might see is 5.999999... - but when you round it to an int, it's 5, not 6. The intRandom(low, high) method shown by Joyce is correct - it has an extra +1 which makes the necessary difference. [ December 23, 2002: Message edited by: Jim Yingst ]
hi all, of course i meant it to be the way it is. it won't return MAX number anytime. i just shifted the range from [0.0,1.0) to [min,max) once basics works then grooming doesn't take much time thanks for pointing that out. regards maulin
