IMSL_RANDOM_TABLE

IMSL_RANDOM_TABLE

The IMSL_RANDOM_TABLE procedure sets or retrieves the current table used in either the shuffled or GFSR random number generator.

The values in table are initialized by the IMSL random number generators. The values are all positive except if you wish to reinitialize the array, in which case the first element of the array is input as a nonpositive value. (Usually, one should avoid reinitializing these arrays, but it might be necessary sometimes in restarting a simulation.) If the first element of table is set to a nonpositive value on the call to IMSL_RANDOM_TABLE with the keyword SET, on the next invocation of a routine to generate random numbers, the appropriate table will be reinitialized.

For more details on the shuffled and GFSR generators see the “Overview: Random Number Generation” on page 1066.
