Roll R←?Y

Y may be any non-negative integer array. R has the same shape as Y at each depth.

For each positive element of Y the corresponding element of R is an integer, pseudo-randomly selected from the integers ⍳Y with each integer in this population having an equal chance of being selected.

For each zero element of Y, the corresponding element of R is a pseudo-random floating-point value in the range 0 - 1, but excluding 0 and 1, i.e. (0<R[I]<1).

⎕IO and ⎕RL are implicit arguments of Roll. A side effect of Roll is to change the value of ⎕RL.

Note that different random number generators are available; see ⎕RL for more information.
