Rnd - function of language VBScript

Description:
The function returns a value greater or equal 0 and less than 1.

For the purposes of PROMOTIC system, it is more usefull to use the method: Pm.Random.

Syntax:
Rnd(number As Integer) As Double
Calling:
n = Rnd[(number)]
Parameters:
number(Integer) Any valid numeric expression. The value of number determines how it generates a random number.
less than 0 - the same number every time, using number as the seed
greater than 0 - the next random number in the sequence
equal 0 - the most recently generated number
not supplied - the next random number in the sequence
Note:

For any given initial seed, the same number sequence is generated because each successive call to the Rnd function uses the previous number as a seed for the next number in the sequence.

Before calling Rnd, use the Randomize statement without an argument to initialize the random-number generator with a seed based on the system timer.

To produce random integers in a given range, use this formula:

Int((upperbound - lowerbound + 1) * Rnd + lowerbound)

Here, upperbound is the highest number in the range, and lowerbound is the lowest number in the range.

To repeat sequences of random numbers, call Rnd with a negative argument immediately before using Randomize with a numeric argument. Using Randomize with the same value for number does not repeat the previous sequence.
