### Will someone plz explain me what prob can really do ???

Jun 13 2006 | 10:36 pm

I read the help file and the pdf, but still I cannot understand. (excuse me, but are they miss-explained??)

if I did "0 1 100, 1 0 100" does this mean that it will always go between 0 and 1.
cause it didn’t.
I though the last number meant percentage "%". No ??

if the percentage is always summed,
"0 1 75, 1 0 25"
what will happen after "1" in this case ???
it’s 25% likely to go back to "0" ?? What happens if not ??

I only try to use only "0" and "1", but it sometimes outputs "2" and "3", too.

There are no intentions about what I’m willing to do with it.

If you ever used this, will you plz expain this to me ?

It does for me.

No. It is a weight. Since you only have one possible transition, then that will always be 100%. But if you have something like this:

0 1 1
0 2 3

then, it will go from 0 to 1 25% of the time (1 out of 4) and 0 to 2 75% of the time (3 out of 4). 4 is the sum of all weights for 0 to something.

The "dump" message will give you some useful info. Also, you should consider what happens if it get’s stuck.

send a patch if you would like more help.
