This function is not supported in earlier versions.

Generates a pseudo-random number in a platform independent manner. The default love.run seeds this function at startup, so you generally don't need to seed it yourself.

Function

Get uniformly distributed pseudo-random real number within [0, 1].

Synopsis

number = love.math.random( )

Arguments

None.

Returns

number number
The pseudo-random number.

Function

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.

Function

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

Synopsis

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
The pseudo-random integer number.
