Guys, I want to randomly pick one of a number of values, with given probability for each item, e.g.
abc 50% def 25% ghi 25% The obvious way is to take a list where the 50% item is given twice and then randomly pick one, but what if I want to use a probability of 51.3% (and don't tell me of a list with 1000 entries and 513 times the 'abc' item *g*). This seems to be trivial, but I just can't think of a simple and proper way to do it. Any ideas? Regards, Gunther E.
