Abstract

A previous article [Comput. Phys. Commun. 75 (1993) 105] compared and analyzed the pseudorandom number generators that are delivered with off-the-shelf Fortran compilers for personal computers. Since the writing of that article, Microsoft has released a new 32-bit protected mode compiler which includes a rewritten generator. The new routine is examined, and the Tausworthe and lagged-Fibonacci routines from the previous article are updated to provide support for this product.
