Hello,

Have a look at the "sample" command.

E.g.

*> sample(20)
*

[1] 3 2 18 6 10 5 9 20 19 13 8 15 17 7 4 14 11 1 12 16

Subject: [R] Generate a sequence of random integer values

I'm trying to generate a sequence of random integer values. I've tried

to combine the random (r) and the sequence (seq) functions but this

approach does not work. For example, if I use the following command:

*> a <- seq(1:100)
*

*> a
*

[1] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 etc.

This is a good start, but what I really want is something that would

look like this instead

[1] 3 96 45 67 8 24 99 63 8, etc.

where the integer numbers between 1 and 100 are randomly chosen.

Any help would be great, I've found workarounds in other stat packages,

but would prefer to do this in R.
