How do I program a random value of either 1 or -1?

leave a comment »

In in my case actionscript or any other programming language, you might want to code a random value to be either 1 or -1, for example to randomly have an object rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise. This is how you can get this value in actionscript:

var randomDirection:Number = Math.round(Math.random())*2-1;

Now the randomDirection variable will always be either 1 or -1.
