From Rosetta Code


Hi Benji, why the change to the Python random example? Does random.randint always use the OS's random number generator? --Paddy3118 (talk) 09:04, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi Paddy, yep random.randint uses the OS's random number generator. The new version of the code is just simpler and is what people will normally want. --Benji (talk) 01:39, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Obscuring example

Hi Benji. If an example is wrong then it's good to fix the example. If you have a new way of completing the task than the example given then you might split the entry, adding explanations as well as another entry, but otherwise if there is a prior entry for a task then it is usually left alone. I reverted your edits to Range extraction#Python for that last reason; (but also because the Python example was written as part of defining the task too). --Paddy3118 (talk) 10:57, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Paddy. I wouldn't say the example was wrong, but it didn't demonstrate the strengths of Python very well. I'm new here so I may have missed some nuance. --Benji (talk) 01:41, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
