Rand.Real

it generates a real number between 0 and 1

then just multiply it by a multiplier if you want bigger numbers to be generated

for example, you want a real number between 0 and 100

num:=Rand.Real * 100

ok .. use Rand.Real, giving you a number between 0 and 1.
then use a multiplier.
then multiply it by 100.
then use round(n).
then divide by 100, and throw in your dollar sign.

code:

var num : real
var int_num : int
var multiplier : int := 100 % now it's a number from 0 to 100.

num := Rand.Real * multiplier * 100
int_num := round(num)
num := int_num / 100



you could shorten this, but it's to show you what i mean.

code:

var multiplier : int := 10000
var num : real := (round(Rand.Real * multiplier)) / 100



and then after that, you'd need to do your check to add necessary zeroes. but that shouldn't be a problem.

i think that's just for integers....

it is... Rand.Int() actually uses Rand.Real() function inside itself to come up with an int.
