I don't remember if I tried it. I hope I got the cut and paste correct. If you try it and there are problems email me and I'll send it to you directly as an attachment.  Joel % RANDOM.TEX Generating "random" numbers in TeX. % % Random integers are generated in the range 1 to 2147483646 by the % macro \nextrandom. The result is returned in the counter \randomi. % Do not change \randomi except, perhaps, to initialize it at some % random value. If you do not initialize it, it will be initialized % using the time and date. (This is a sparse initialization, giving % fewer than a million different starting values, but you can use % other sources of numbers if they are available  just remember that % most of the numbers available to TeX are not at all random.) % % The \nextrandom command is not very useful by itself, unless you % have exactly 2147483646 things to choose from. Much more useful % is the \setrannum command which sets a given counter to a random % value within a specified range. There are three parameters: % \setrannum {<counter>} {<minimum>} {<maximum>}. For example, to % simulate a dieroll: \setrannum{\die}{1}{6} \ifcase\die... . % % If you need random numbers that are not integers, you will have to % use dimen registers and \setrandimen. For example, to set a random % page width: \setrandimen \hsize{3in}{6.5in}. The "\pointless" macro % will remove the "pt" that TeX gives so you can use the dimensions % as pure `real' numbers. In that case, specify the range in pt units. % For example, % \setrandimen\answer{2.71828pt}{3.14159pt} % The answer is \pointless\answer. % % The random number generator is the one by Lewis, Goodman, and Miller % (1969) and used as "ran0" in "Numerical Recipies" using Schrage's % method for avoiding overflows. The multiplier is 16807 (7^5), the % added constant is 0, and the modulus is 2147483647 (2^{31}1).
