RANDOM(6) BSD Reference Manual RANDOM(6)
NAME
random  random lines from a file or random numbers
SYNOPSIS
random [er] [denominator]
DESCRIPTION
Random reads lines from the standard input and copies them to the stan
dard output with a probability of 1/denominator. The default value for
denominator is 2.
The options are as follows:
e If the e option is specified, random does not read or write any
thing, and simply exits with a random exit value of 0 to
denominator  1, inclusive.
r The r option guarantees that the output is unbuffered.
