Hello all its my first time here but i have a problem that i cannot solve.
I need to make a program that runs all the time, and it needs to first check if its getting a redstone signal, then it needs to choose a random integer between 1-3 and output a redstone signal in one of three ways. Sorry for the bad description and grammar, tell me if you need me to get a picture of what i am trying to do....

local inputSide = "back"                                            -- Or whatever.
local outputSide = {"front","right","left"}                         -- Or whatever.
local outputPulseDuration = 1                                       -- Or whatever.

while true do                                                       -- Start a loop that repeats indefinitely.
	if rs.getInput(inputSide) then                              -- If we're getting input,
		local currentOutput = math.random(#outputSide)      -- ... choose a random number between one and the number of entries in outputSide...
		rs.setOutput(outputSide[currentOutput],true)        -- ... enable the output which corresponds to that number in the outputSide table...
		sleep(outputPulseDuration)                          -- ... wait a while...
		rs.setOutput(outputSide[currentOutput],false)       -- ... then turn it off again.
		while rs.getInput(inputSide) do                     -- Then, so long as we're STILL getting input,
			os.pullEvent("redstone")                    -- ... wait for changes in redstone input.

	os.pullEvent("redstone")                                    -- Wait for any change in input (eg the signal turning back on).
end                                                                 -- Go back up and repeat the loop.

name the program startup, so it would automatically start if you open the computer and stay on until minecraft restart.
