Name:
Random - Returns a  random number.
Synopsis:
 
rdvtype Random -> r
dict Random -> r
Examples:
Create a generator for binomial numbers based on a Knuth LFG random  
number generator, set parameters to p=0.2 and n=10, and draw a number:

SLI ] rngdict /MT19937 get 123456789 CreateRNG /rng Set
SLI ] rng rdevdict /binomial get CreateRDV /bino Set
SLI ] bino << /p 0.2 /n 10 >> SetStatus
SLI ] bino Random ==
3
Description:
Returns a single random numbers drawn from a random  
deviate generator. The random deviate can be a deviate
