So this function is part of a series of random number generators published
by J. Hilbe and W. Linde-Zwirble, and accessible via -findit rndlgn-. What
makes you think you need 20,000 obs? Just say:

*************
rndlgn 500 0 0.5
*************

Even if it did require 20,000 initially, you could still -keep in 1/500-...

Hi, folks,
   I know the function ' rndlgn' can generate lognormal RVs, but it requires
the numbers of observation to be at 20000. Now, I want a list of only 500.
What should I do then?
thanks,
samn
