       gsl-randist - generate random samples from various distributions


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


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


       Here  is  an  example.   We generate 10000 random samples from a Cauchy
       distribution with a width of 30 and histogram them over the range  -100
       to 100, using 200 bins.

            gsl-randist  0  10000  cauchy  30  |  gsl-histogram -100 100 200 >

       A plot of the resulting histogram will show the familiar shape  of  the
       Cauchy distribution with fluctuations caused by the finite sample size.

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


       gsl(3), gsl-histogram(1).
