st: Random number seed
Can the stata random number seed be itself randomized?
I am running a program called "market.do" in the batch mode without
invoking/opening stata. This program carries out an analysis based on a set
of 1,000 uniform random numbers it generates.
However, since the random seed is always the same everytime I run the
program in batch mode, I get the same set of 1,000 random numbers each time
I run this program in batch mode. Results are identical which defeats the
Can this be changed?
