Usage

    getRNG(e=NULL)
    ## Default S3 method:
getRNG(e=NULL)

Arguments

e

an object generated by simulation (which stored the RNG information).

Details

Extract the RNG information used to generate the object. If e is NULL then getRNG returns the RNG setting, as returned by setRNG(). Otherwise, the default method assumes the object is a list and the RNG information is in the element rng or noise\$rng.

Value

The random seed and other random number generation information used to generate the object.
