RANDOM(6)		       BSD Games Manual			     RANDOM(6)

NAME
     randomrandom lines from a file or random numbers

SYNOPSIS
     random [-er] [denominator]

DESCRIPTION
     Random reads lines from the standard input and copies them to the stan‐
     dard output with a probability of 1/denominator.  The default value for
     denominator is 2.

     The options are as follows:

     -e	     If the -e option is specified, random does not read or write any‐
	     thing, and simply exits with a random exit value of 0 to
	     denominator - 1, inclusive.

     -r	     The -r option guarantees that the output is unbuffered.
