Last change on this file since 1586 was 1586, checked in by dkearney, 11 years ago

updating potential apis for c cpp and python. adding random() and diff()
functions to the rappture objects. objects should be able to generate a random
value for itself based on how it was configured. objects should be able to
compare itself with another object and tell us what the differences are.
