Just choose a random number yourself, eg. nrrandom=17 (just kidding :) import random nrrandom = random.randint(0,20) See also the random.randrange function. -- TZOTZIOY, I speak England very best.

It has a randint() method that should do the job. Read the docs for more. Assigning to nrrandom? Is that just a variable name? Have you read the tutorial, which covers basic things like assignment? -Peter Jul 19 '05 #4

 P: n/a Yes I know about assigning and all that. I just stated the name of the variable so that people could easily explain how to create the random number. I needed it to practice Python. I just finished making a number guess program. I just finished it. It was much easier to do then I thought it would be. Jul 19 '05 #5
