Descripción

mt_getrandmax(): int

Returns the maximum value that can be returned by a call to mt_rand().

Returns the maximum random value returned by a call to mt_rand() without arguments, which is the maximum value that can be used for its max parameter without the result being scaled up (and therefore less random).

Ejemplos

Ejemplo #1 Calculate a random floating-point number

<?php
function randomFloat($min 0$max 1) {
    return 
$min mt_rand() / mt_getrandmax() * ($max $min);
}

var_dump(randomFloat());
var_dump(randomFloat(220));
?>

El resultado del ejemplo sería algo similar a:

float(0.91601131712832)
float(16.511210331931)

The upper-bound of this value is platform-independent.  PHP implements the 32-bit version of the Mersenne Twister ("mt"), so the maximum possible value is 2**31 - 1 (2147483647).
