A Pseudo Random Number Generator for the PDP-8 for use
FOCAL8-1
with FOCAL

A pseudo random number generator adapted to the PDP-8
computer has been tested for randomness and uniformity. The
test for randomness shows a definite bias. However, this
generation algorithm compares favorably with others presently
being used. It was written to replace the random number
generator of the 4K FOCAL language.

Minimum Hardware:
4K PDP-8
