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.
