NAME

gsl-randist - generate random samples from various distributions 

SYNOPSYS

gsl-randist seed n DIST param1 param2 [..] 

DESCRIPTION

gsl-randist is a demonstration program for the GNU Scientific Library.It generates n random samples from the distribution DIST using the distributionparameters param1, param2, ... 

EXAMPLE

Here is an example. We generate 10000 random samples from a Cauchydistribution with a width of 30 and histogram them over the range -100 to100, using 200 bins.
 
     gsl-randist 0 10000 cauchy 30 | gsl-histogram -100 100 200 > histogram.dat
 A plot of the resulting histogram will show the familiar shape of theCauchy distribution with fluctuations caused by the finite samplesize.


     awk '{print $1, $3 ; print $2, $3}' histogram.dat | graph -T X
