Yes, I was assuming that it takes more than the mean and SD to really check on a random number generator (let me know if you know further ways to check, that does not involve heavy computing power). Take a look at the PPC journals I mentioned. In the V4N8 article about a dozen tests are mentioned.

It's exactly this method (r_{n+1} = 9821 · r_{n}+0,211327) that makes this a highquality generator that is hard to beat. Of course you can start with essentially any seed between 0 and 1. Dieter
