Description:

Random Numbers generates true random numbers; compiled program and source code are included. The source code uses two little-known algorithms to generate unique random numbers. The numbers are truly random. The randomization seed is highly random. The algorithms in this sample program are most concise algorithms of random number generation. The computers can generate numbers as highly random as by manual selection or running mechanical devices.

Included is a highly randomized function I created to set the random seed: TheSeeder. It uses the system date and time, instead of just the TIMER. Many confuse randomness for probability. If the seed is between 1 and 10, for example, the seed is not considered to be random. In fact, what we talking about is the DEGREE OF RANDOMNESS. The larger the range of the seed, the more randomized the seed is. That's so because the probability of selecting one particular seed is lower.

The TIMER takes 86400 values (number of seconds in 24 hours). of course, if using the TIMER only as the seed and running the random generator at the same time of the day, the sequence of numbers will be always the same. Hence, the term pseudo-random. TheSeeder generates random seeds between millions and billions. You won't see the same seed again in your lifetime!

The fully functional program can also generate roulette spins. The parameters: Largest number 37 (French roulette) or 38 (American roulette); numbers per combination = 1 (one spin at a time). Then deduct 1 from the outcome. Thus, roulette number 1 becomes 0, while number 37 becomes 36. The special case in American roulette: number 38 becomes double zero (00).

It works best at the command prompt for best speed; all 32/64 bit versions of Windows supported. http://saliu.com/membership.html http://saliu.com/random-numbers.html . Absolutely the best on random, numbers, generator, source code, algorithm, BASIC programming language, randomizing, program, lotto, lottery, roulette.
