Rule random_api_migration

Replaces rand, srand, getrandmax functions calls with their mt_* analogs or random_int.

Warning

Using this rule is risky

Risky when the configured functions are overridden. Or when relying on the seed based generating of the numbers.

Configuration

replacements

Mapping between replaced functions with the new ones.

Allowed types: array<string, string>

Default value: ['getrandmax' => 'mt_getrandmax', 'rand' => 'mt_rand', 'srand' => 'mt_srand']
