Specifies whether the function returns identical results for identical inputs.

This clause is optional and can only be specified once per function definition.

For example, if the function calls a random number generator as part of its processing, then the results of a function call cannot be known in advance of making the call and the function is NOT DETERMINISTIC.
The default is NOT DETERMINISTIC.
