Python is an interpreted language, which automatically means it's not too fast. Code is read one line at a time, interpreted and only then executes. Being very flexible it allows writing most things in several different ways. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage.
"Return a random integer N such that a <= N <= b."
"Return a randomly selected element from range(start, stop, step). This is equivalent to choice(range(start, stop, step)), but doesn't actually build a range object."
"Return a random element from the non-empty sequence seq."
"Return the next random floating point number in the range [0.0, 1.0)."
"On Unix, return the current processor time as a floating pointnumber expressed in seconds. The precision, and in fact the verydefinition of the meaning of ``processor time'', depends on that of the C function of the same name, but in any case, this is the function to use for benchmarking Python or timing algorithms.
