I'm fairly new to PHP and I have a question regarding the `getrandmax()` function. I recently came across this function while working on a project, and I'm not quite sure I understand its purpose.
From what I gather, `getrandmax()` is a built-in PHP function that returns the maximum random number value that can be generated by the `rand()` function. However, I'm not entirely sure how this information could be useful or why one would need to know this maximum value.
To provide some context, I'm currently working on a web application that involves generating random numbers within a specific range. While researching ways to accomplish this using PHP, I came across `getrandmax()`, but I'm not quite sure how it fits into my project.
Can someone please explain how `getrandmax()` works and when it would be appropriate to use it? Additionally, it would be helpful if you could provide me with an example code snippet that demonstrates its usage.
Thank you so much in advance for your help! I really appreciate it.
