This module supports the Visual Basic language keywords and run-time library members for generating random numbers.

This example uses the Rnd function to generate a random integer value in the range from 1 to 6.

Randomize()
' Generate random value between 1 and 6. 
Dim value As Integer = CInt(Int((6 * Rnd()) + 1))
