JavaScript Frequently Asked Questions


Why is this:

Math.floor(Math.random()*(N-M+1))%(N-M+1)+M

Better than whats in the c.l.j FAQ?

Normally it isn't, but in some older browsers, the Math.random
function could return 1.0. The extra modulo operation takes care of
that. The only browsers I know of with that problem is Opera 4 and 5
(and according to Dr. J.R. Stockton, Opera 6.01 had the same problem,
but 6.05 doesn't: <URL:http://www.merlyn.demon.co.uk/js-randm.htm#MR>)
