Arguments

seed

TRUE or NA, or a numeric vector of length one or seven.

Details

The as_lecyer_cmrg_seed() function preserves the current RNG state, that is, it leaves globalenv()$.Random.seed intact, which means it also leaved the RNG kind (RNGkind()) intact.

Per base::RNGkind(), a L'Ecuyer-CMRG seed comprise a length-seven integer vector of format .Random.seed <- c(rng.kind, n) where length(n) == 6L and rng.kind fulfills rng.kind %% 10000L == 407L.

Value

as_lecyer_cmrg_seed(seed) returns a L'Ecuyer-CMRG seed, which is a 7-digit integer vector, based on the input seed. If already a L'Ecuyer-CMRG seed, then seed is return as-is. If a scalar integer, then a random L'Ecuyer-CMRG seed is created based on this seed as the current RNG state. If seed = TRUE and the current seed is already a L'Ecuyer-CMRG seed, then then current seed (.Random.seed) is return as-is. If seed = TRUE and the current seed is not of the 'L'Ecuyer-CMRG' kind, or seed = NA, then a random one is created (based on the current RNG state). Any other values, including FALSE, is an error.

is_lecyer_cmrg_seed(seed) returns TRUE if seed is L'Ecuyer-CMRG seed, otherwise FALSE.
