<p>The following program demonstrates the use of a random number generator
to produce uniform random numbers in the range [0.0, 1.0),
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="verbatim">#include &lt;stdio.h&gt;
#include &lt;gsl/gsl_rng.h&gt;

int
main (void)
{
  const gsl_rng_type * T;
  gsl_rng * r;

  int i, n = 10;

  gsl_rng_env_setup();

  T = gsl_rng_default;
  r = gsl_rng_alloc (T);

  for (i = 0; i &lt; n; i++) 
    {
      double u = gsl_rng_uniform (r);
      printf (&quot;%.5f\n&quot;, u);
    }

  gsl_rng_free (r);

  return 0;
}
</pre></div>

<p>Here is the output of the program,
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">$ ./a.out 
</pre><pre class="verbatim">0.99974
0.16291
0.28262
0.94720
0.23166
0.48497
0.95748
0.74431
0.54004
0.73995
</pre></div>

<p>The numbers depend on the seed used by the generator.  The default seed
can be changed with the <code>GSL_RNG_SEED</code> environment variable to
produce a different stream of numbers.  The generator itself can be
changed using the environment variable <code>GSL_RNG_TYPE</code>.  Here is the
output of the program using a seed value of 123 and the
multiple-recursive generator <code>mrg</code>,
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">$ GSL_RNG_SEED=123 GSL_RNG_TYPE=mrg ./a.out 
</pre><pre class="verbatim">0.33050
0.86631
0.32982
