|Subject: ||Difference between rand('UNIFORM') and ranuni(0)?|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset="us-ascii"|
Is there any real difference between rand('UNIFORM') and ranuni(0)?
When comparing two "sibling" programs that I had written some time ago, I
noticed that in one case I used rand('UNIFORM') and in the other I used
ranuni(0). I wondered why I wasn't consistent.
Was there a reason I chose one over the other? Or was it just a (random)
luck of the draw?
Any insights into my brain? Is there any real functional difference between
