name
gauss: generate a bunch of gaussianly distributed numbers

synopsis
gauss(gaussp:in, data: out, genhisparameters: out, output: out)

files

gaussp: parameter file controlling the program.
Two numbers, one per line:
seed: random seed to start the process
total: the number of numbers to generate

data: the input file for genhis.  this is a set of numbers which
should have gaussian distribution if the random number generator
is a reasonable one.  It will be N(0,1), a normal distribution
with mean 0 and standard deviation 1.

genhisparameters: control file for genhis.  Copy or move to the
name genhisp to control genhis.  This gives the user flexibility.

output: messages to the user

description

Test of a random number generator by creating a Gaussian
distribution of numbers for plotting by genhis.  Further details of
the method are in email communications appended to the end of this
program in a comment.

example
seed := 0.5;
total := 10000;

technical notes
%
the constant n in procedure randomtest determines how many times
the random number generator will be in a series of tests.  if n
is small, the the test will be poor, if it is large then the test may
take a long time.
