Hi, there,
   As we all know, the random numbers from Gamma distributions should be positive; but when I use 'rgamma' to generate 100 numbers, it has 7 zeros, why is that? Is this reasonable? is there any way to get rid of these zeros? 
   You know ,I need to take log of these numbers, the zeros are really bothering me.

thanks in advance!

samn
