( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I guess I am missing the point of the question, first you ask:
I need to be able to generate repeatable pseudo random sequences of integers in a range 1-N, such that given the same (integer) seed, the same sequence will always be produced.
Then:
so I would like to avoid leaving the seed set to a deterministic value.

So it looks like you are asking for 2 exclusive things? rephrased it looks like "I need to be able to reproduce the random number sequence generated" and then "I donít like being able to reproduce the random number sequence generated". Can you clear up what you are asking here? I guess the bottom line the way the question stands is that you _need_ a known seed to reproduce the random sequence...

Thanks!

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
