Random number generator in HP 30S
Anybody know which pseudo-random number generator is used in the HP 30S? It seems to be a very poor generator, since RANDM*2^16 always returns integers (that's sad) which alternate between even and odd (also sad). The 30S doesn't let you seed the generator; even clearing the calculator doesn't restart the generator at a predictable place in its sequence. Any insights that you have about the 30S's random number generator would be greatly appreciated.
