Hello,

 

I am currently trying to find a solution for random number, my program will randomize a list of guys that have to do certain task.

 

We are 6 people, so the solution i thought was:

 

rand_person = TPM1CNT % 6 so the output will give me 0,1,2,3,4,5. But it isn´t working as espected.

 

also the TPM1MOD = 655; so it interrupts every 10 ms

 

So i will be pleased if someone could tell me the best way to generate a random number.

 

regards
