RndPairs(n, r, rdist1 = rnorm(n = n, mean = 0, sd = 1),
         rdist2 = rnorm(n = n, mean = 0, sd = 1))

RndWord(size, length, x = LETTERS, replace = TRUE, prob = NULL)

Arguments

n

number of pairs. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required.

r

the correlation between the two sets.

rdist1, rdist2

the distribution of the random vector X1 and X2. Default is standard normal distribution.

size

a non-negative integer giving the number of artificial words to build.

length

a non-negative integer giving the length of the words.

x

elements to choose from.

replace

Should sampling be with replacement?

prob

a vector of probability weights for obtaining the elements of the vector being sampled.

Value

a data.frame with 2 columns, X1 and X2 containing the random numbers
