randnormal Tcl Command

NAME

randnormal - normally distributed random numbers

SYNOPSIS

dmh::randnormal ?mean sigma?

DESCRIPTION

This command returns a random number from a normal (Gaussian) distribution with mean mean and standard deviation sigma. The latter arguments default to 0, and 1, if not specified.

The command sets and uses the ::dmh namespace variable random_seed. If you wish, you may initialize this value so that the generated sequence is not the same from program run to program run.
