NAME

     random - random lines from a file or random numbers

SYNOPSIS

     random [-er] [denominator]

DESCRIPTION

     random reads lines from the standard input and copies them to the
     standard 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
             anything, and simply exits with a random exit value of 0 to
             denominator-1, inclusive.

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