[REBOL] Re: Random numbers for Monte Carlo

From: tomc:darkwing:uoregon at: 10-Aug-2002 10:46

Hi Ladislav, When playing with Monte Carlo for a class a few years back I was content to periodically reseed Rebols RNG with a very random number. (when I just now checked, the HotBits site was up but not serving numbers) comment{ seed the RNG with a radioactive decay induced non-pesudo-random number if connected to the net(and HotBits server up) or with the current time otherwise } random/seed either all [ not error? try[ rnd-pg: read] parse rnd-pg [thru <pre> "^/" copy seed to "^/"] ] [make integer! make binary! seed] [now] On Sat, 10 Aug 2002, Ladislav Mecir wrote:
