- random.BitGenerator.random_raw(self, size=None)¶
Return randoms as generated by the underlying BitGenerator
- sizeint or tuple of ints, optional
Output shape. If the given shape is, e.g.,
(m, n, k), then
m * n * ksamples are drawn. Default is None, in which case a single value is returned.
- outputbool, optional
Output values. Used for performance testing since the generated values are not returned.
- outuint or ndarray
This method directly exposes the the raw underlying pseudo-random number generator. All values are returned as unsigned 64-bit values irrespective of the number of bits produced by the PRNG.
See the class docstring for the number of bits returned.
