Returns an infinite sequence of random integers between 0 and maxValue.

Namespace:  MoreLinq
Assembly:  MoreLinq (in MoreLinq.dll) Version: 2.4.0
public static IEnumerable<int> Random(
	int maxValue


Type: SystemInt32
exclusive upper bound for the random values returned

Return Value

Type: IEnumerableInt32
An infinite sequence of random integers
The implementation internally uses a shared, thread-local instance of Random to generate a random number on each iteration. The actual Random instance used therefore will depend on the thread on which a single iteration is taking place; that is the call to MoveNext. If the overall iteration takes place on different threads (e.g. via asynchronous awaits completing on different threads) then various different Random instances will be involved in the generation of the sequence of random numbers. Because the Random instance is shared, if multiple sequences are generated on the same thread, the order of enumeration affects the resulting sequences.
