I'm working with a programmer on translating code I wrote for a simulation
in S into FORTRAN. Since the S source code is not available, I decided to
use the random number generator (RNG) in R. The problem is that the R code
is complex enough that we can't isolate the proper source files to include.
Although we can link to the C code and call the RNG, we haven't been able to
find the files that update the value of .Random.seed. Does anyone know
exactly which files and libraries in the source code are necessary for the
RNG to work proplerly? We want to avoid using the entire R installation.
