#2

What’s the issue?


#3

@crstnbr, I have already used “using Random”, do I need to use “import Random” in order to use the “Base.GLOBAL_RNG”?


#4

Calling Base.GLOBAL_RNG still tries to access GLOBAL_RNG in the module Base, from which it was deprecated.

What are you actually trying to do? It might be helpful to consult the Random docs


#5

@nilshg, I was trying to figure it out what’s going on. Thank you.


#6

I tested it again. This time,

using Random
Random.GLOBAL_RNG 

works.
