Cliff Posted March 10, 2022 Share Posted March 10, 2022 I understand from initial testing, that currently rnd-sample works what statisticians call sampling with replacement. Is this correct (please forgive me if I missed something in the doc) ? I guess the current behavior covers most musical cases, as long as you want to get a sample which holds some mix of elements in SEQUENCE. There might be cases where you want a slightly different behaviour especially if N is close to length of SEQUENCE. If I am correct, I suggest to implement a parameter :replace (by default t (true) for backward compatibility) to define a behavior where the elements from SEQUENCE are not replaced. For :replace set to nil: If N exceeds length of SEQUENCE then an error is raised. If N equals the length of SEQUENCE then simply all elements are returned.
