Alternatives to _seed
Important: In releases of Maple up to and including 9.5, the _seed variable was used to store the state of the random number generators created by rand. However this use of _seed has been deprecated and its special meaning may be removed in future releases of Maple.
Instead of using _seed, use randomize, RandomTools[SetState], or RandomTools[GetState].
Currently assigning to _seed or reading the value assigned to _seed will raise a warning. However, the assignment will cause the state of the random number generator used by rand and RandomTools to be seeded from the given value. As well, the value returned by a read from _seed will be a valid state that can be re-assigned to _seed.
rand, randomize, RandomTools, RandomTools[GetState], RandomTools[SetState]
