Definition

INT rand_seed ( <INT seed> )

Seeds the random generator, used in rand().

This is useful for synchronizing the random generator on multiple machines, as when the same seed is used, calls to rand() with the same limits will return values in the same order on all the machines.

To reset the seeding to its original state, meaning the state before any call to rand() or rand_seed(), set seed to 1.

Parameters

INT seed - The seed for the random generator used in rand(); 1 to reset.

Returns

INT : true

Example

import "mod_rand"
import "mod_say"
import "mod_time"

Process Main()
Begin
	say("First number: " + (rand(0,1000)%100));
	rand_seed(time());
	say("Random number: " + (rand(0,1000)%100));
	rand_seed(1);
	say("Again the first number: " + (rand(0,1000)%100));
End

Used in example: say(), rand(), rand_seed()
