randperm (RandStream)

Random permutation

Class

`RandStream`

Syntax

`p = randperm(s,n)p = randperm(s,n,k)`

Description

`p = randperm(s,n)` returns a row vector containing a random permutation of integers from 1 to `n` inclusive. `randperm(s,n)` uses random values drawn from the random stream `s`.

`p = randperm(s,n,k)` returns a row vector containing `k` unique integers selected randomly from 1 to `n` inclusive.

Examples

Create a random stream `s` and generate a random permutation of the integers from 1 to 6 based on `s`:

```s = RandStream('mt19937ar','Seed',0); randperm(s,6)```
MATLAB® returns the vector
`[6 3 5 1 2 4]`

Use the random stream `s` to generate three integers between 1 and 10:

```randperm(s,10,3) ans = 1 8 9```

Tips

For `p = randperm(s,n,k)`, `p` contains `k` unique values. `randperm` performs k-permutations (sampling without replacement). To allow repeated values in the output (sampling with replacement), use `randi(s,n,1,k)`.
