Python: Set a random seed and get a random number between 0 and 1

Python module: Exercise-9 with Solution

Write a Python program to set a random seed and get a random number between 0 and 1.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import random 
print("Set a random seed and get a random number between 0 and 1:")
random.seed(0)
new_random_value = random.random()
print(new_random_value)
random.seed(1)
new_random_value = random.random()
print(new_random_value)
random.seed(2)
new_random_value = random.random()
print(new_random_value)

Sample Output:

Set a random seed and get a random number between 0 and 1:
0.8444218515250481
0.13436424411240122
0.9560342718892494

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.")
