Generating a Random Permutation
Syntax randperm(n)
See Also seed , snormal

Description
Generates a random ordering of the integers between 1 and the real part of n, where n is an integer, real, complex scalar with real part equal to an integer value. The return value is an integer row vector of length equal to the real part of n.

Example
If you enter
     clear
     randperm(5)
O-Matrix will reply
     [ 4 , 1 , 3 , 5 , 2 ]
Note that the return value depends on the current seeding of the O-Matrix random number generator. If you continue by enter
     randperm(5)
O-Matrix will reply
     [ 2 , 1 , 4 , 3 , 5 ]
