## ◆ slarnd()

 real function slarnd ( integer IDIST, integer, dimension( 4 ) ISEED )

SLARND

Purpose:
``` SLARND returns a random real number from a uniform or normal
distribution.```
Parameters
 [in] IDIST ``` IDIST is INTEGER Specifies the distribution of the random numbers: = 1: uniform (0,1) = 2: uniform (-1,1) = 3: normal (0,1)``` [in,out] ISEED ``` ISEED is INTEGER array, dimension (4) On entry, the seed of the random number generator; the array elements must be between 0 and 4095, and ISEED(4) must be odd. On exit, the seed is updated.```
Further Details:
```  This routine calls the auxiliary routine SLARAN to generate a random
real number from a uniform (0,1) distribution. The Box-Muller method
is used to transform numbers from a uniform to a normal distribution.```
