Random field generator
rand can generate random numbers, strings and other data types.
rand data-type [ max-value ]
Random integer: 64-bit on 64-bit machines
Random integer between 0 and 9
rand int 9
Random floating point number between 0 and 1
Random string, fixed to 5 characters long
rand str 5
*Alias for str (string)
floatRandom floating point number between 0 and 1. max-value not supported
intRandom integer, max-value specifies highest value for integer
numAlias for int in this builtin
strRandom string of printable ASCII characters. max-value specifies the fixed length of the string
WARNING: is should be noted that while
rand can produce random numbers and strings which might be useful for password generation, neither the RNG nor the the random string generator (which is ostensibly the same RNG but applied to an array of bytes within the range of printable ASCII characters) are considered cryptographically secure.
format: Reformat one data-type into another data-type
let: Evaluate a mathematical function and assign to variable (deprecated)
set: Define a local variable and set it's value
