On a Cray supercomputer running UNICOS, obtain the manual page on its intrinsic
random number generator by typing at the UNICOS prompt (%) ``` man ranf >
ranf.doc`''. Read the file ` ranf.doc` to see how to set and get the seed
for ` ranf`. Given that ` ranf` is a multiplicative, congruential
generator (c = 0) using 46 bits - get the initial seed; discuss it in terms of
cycle length. Set the seed to 1, and call ` ranf` to obtain a new seed.
Get
and print out the new seed; this new seed is the multiplier of the generator.
Discuss the multiplier in the context of the cycle length. Print out the first
ten random integers in decimal and hexadecimal format, and the corresponding
random real numbers using an f20.16 format.
