DESCRIPTION

This submodule - r.agent.rand - is nothing but an example of how the libagent library might be used to get a simple setup running. As the name suggests, r.agent.rand lets agents wander around just based on chance. You only need to define a single input map, just some raster map, that will be completly ignored, it is only used to set the frame for the agents to come.
