Python: Construct a seeded random number and float number generator

Python module: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a Python program to construct a seeded random number generator, also generate a float between 0 and 1, excluding 1.

Use random.random()

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import random
print("Construct a seeded random number generator:")
print(random.Random().random())
print(random.Random(0).random())
print("\nGenerate a float between 0 and 1, excluding 1:")
print(random.random())

Sample Output:

Construct a seeded random number generator:
0.4209937412831368
0.8444218515250481

Generate a float between 0 and 1, excluding 1:
0.5000494615698478

Python: Tips of the Day

For-else construct useful when searched for something and find it:

# For example assume that I need to search through a list and process each item until a flag item is found and 
# then stop processing. If the flag item is missing then an exception needs to be raised.

for i in mylist:
    if i == theflag:
        break
    process(i)
else:
    raise ValueError("List argument missing terminal flag.")
