Dear _all,

Thanks, as always, to Kit Baum, the package -setrngseed- is available for download on SSC.

. ssc describe setrngseed
. ssc install setrngseed

-setrngseed- , written by Bill Gould an I, uses truly random integers obtained from the website to set the seed of Stata's pseudo-random-numbers generator.

For more on the background of random numbers generation, methods for setting the seed, etc., see the following Statalist messages (as well as their follow-ups).
