I'm not an expert on set.seed but I think it would be helpful if you
could post the relevant section of your code.

I have some question about set.seed these days which I may need your
I'm working on some sampling project which need to generate random
by some distributions(like bivariate normal). I noticed that in
computers to run my code,I got very significant different results. Then
started to try set.seed command which I wish to see by fixing the same
random numbers what can happen. But it turned out when I run my codes in
computers I still can get different results. I tried different
Some of them I can get the same results but some not. A special case is
run in two computers which have R version 2.0.1 and 2.1.1 separetely.
the results are different.
Now my question is what's the reason can make the different result
when we run the same codes by setting the same seed?
This will help me a lot with my project.Thank you very much!
