Problem with random

Hey i want to create a Game in Processing and i need a random command wich Pics a random Numbers of 1 to 5 …
If i use the normal random Code then IT could happened that a number bigger than 5 …
I need a special command please send me the command thanks

(int) random(1,6);

should do it. Although there used to be a bug in Processing that you’d occasionally get 6 there, due to use of float over double. This might now be fixed.

Now that I see that with 6, might this work:

floor(random(1, 5.99));

Just wondering…

The conversion to int will already floor it. Looks like the bug I mentioned was fixed some time ago anyway -
