Arguments

None

Details

This function checks that the RNG is working properly and has not been changed. If the RNG does not return values as in previous versions of R then the function executes stop(). Since changes to the RNG will cause comparisons of simulation results to fail, this is a useful check before investigating more complicated problems that may be a result of other "improvements" in your simulation or estimation programs.

Value

logical

Side Effects

Executes stop() if the tests fail.
