Cool To create a real random number

[QUOTE=cheesehead]I recommend Art of Computer Programming, Volume 2: Seminumerical Algorithms by Donald E, Knuth -- Chapter 3 covers random and pseudorandom numbers.

This book and its companion volumes 1 and 3 are worth getting for one's library.Un Quote]

Thank you for recmmending these books of TAOCP.
As India prints these books brand new under licence but for resticted sale to India, Bangla Desh & Ceylon(Sri Lanka) I was able to order all 3 volumes for as little as under $20. Not bad Eh?
I have a few of the other books related to math and physics as mentioned by American Scientist in my possesion and these 3 vols will be a welcome addition.
