See how to build a program that generates and uses random numerical data for a variety of purposes.
- [Narrator] In this chapter we're going to learn … about some useful features of Julia, … that are either built into the language … or are available as modules … that you can import into your apps. … And we'll start off with working with random numbers. … It's fairly common when working with data … to have to generate and use random numbers … for statistics purposes and Julia provides … many features for using random data, … some of which we'll take a look at in this example. … So I'll start up Random Start in my Editor here. … And you can see that I imported the Random Module … at the top of my file using the Using statement. … So this imports the Random Module into my code … and gives me access to the functions and features … available in that module. … So let's try something simple. … We'll us the Rand function to create a random number. … So I'm going to Print Line, and I'm going to call … the Rand function with no arguments. … Let's go ahead and save that … and let's go to the terminal …
