rand (Matlab function)

Uniformly distributed random numbers and arrays

Matlab/Scilab equivalent

Matlab Scilab
rand
rand(n)            % n scalar
rand(sz1,...,szN)

rand(Sizes)
rand(.., 'single')
rand(..,'like',p)  % single | double
rand(randomStream,..)

% No equivalent

rand('seed', sd)
rand('state')
rand('uniform')
rand(1)
rand(n,n)
rand(sz1,..,szN)

// No equivalent
// No equivalent
// No equivalent
// No equivalent

rand(R)   // Only size(R) considered

rand('seed', sd)
// No equivalent
With Matlab, Sizes, sz1, sz2, .. can be complex. Then, only their real parts are used as actual sizes. Scilab would yield an error.
