RandomTools

 SetState
 Set the internal state of the RandomTools Generator

 Calling Sequence SetState( option )

Parameters

 option - (optional) argument of the form option=value where option is state

Description

 • The SetState command sets the state of the pseudo-random number generator used by Generate.  Currently the Mersenne Twister generator is used.
 • A state returned by GetState can be passed into SetState to regenerate a sequence of numbers.
 • SetState accepts one optional argument, state.
 state=value
 The state argument specifies the data used to set the state of the generator.  This argument is passed on to the SetState method of the underlying pseudo-random number generator.  Currently the MersenneTwister[SetState] function is called.  If the state argument is not given then the state is seeded using values taken from the system.
