Function: random_boolean

Function: random_boolean

since 0.3.8

Usage

 random_boolean(probability)

Returns a random bool, either true or false. The parameter is the probability of returning true, so random_boolean(0.0) always returns true, random_boolean(1.0) always returns false and random_boolean(0.5) simulates a fair coin toss.

Since the result is random, calling the function twice will give a different answer.

Parameters
