The Include File 'rand.inc'

In the include file 'rand.inc' we can find the following functions:
For the using of these functions we first have to insert in the scene file:
#include "rand.inc"
Some of the most important funtions: (The variable 'Stream' represents the integer value of 'seed').
SRand(Stream) : a signed random number, in the range between 1 and +1.
RRand(Min, Max, Stream) : a random number in specified range of [Min, Max].
VRand(Stream) : a random point in a box from <0,0,0> to <1,1,1>.
VRand_In_Box(PtA, PtB, Stream) : a random point in a box from PtA to PtB.
VRand_In_Sphere(Stream) : a random vector of a point in a unitradius sphere{<0,0,0>,1}.
VRand_On_Sphere(Stream) : a random vector of a point on a unitradius sphere{<0,0,0>,1}.
VRand_In_Obj(Object, Stream) : a random point inside an arbitrary object.
Beside of these, there are many other macros for other kind of statistic distributions.
For more details on these functions see 'rand.inc'.
