Hello,

You know what you are asking - we do not.

To get useful replies here, you need to clearly post your question in the first place or provide requested info when your question is not understood.

Maybe if you explain what you want to do rather than asking about some verb to do it we may be able to provide some suggestions.

If i even have a glimpse of what you are asking, i suspect that the answer is that no verb is needed. When you want to do a random read, you specify the key value and everything else is done internally.
