number = love.math.random( )

Arguments

None.

Returns

number number
The pseudo-random number.

Get a uniformly distributed pseudo-random integer within [1, max].

Synopsis

number = love.math.random( max )

Arguments

number max
The maximum possible value it should return.

Returns

number number
The pseudo-random integer number.

number = love.math.random( min, max )

Arguments

number min
The minimum possible value it should return.
number max
The maximum possible value it should return.

Returns

number number
