       gsl-randist - generate random samples from various distributions

       gsl-randist seed n DIST param1 param2 [..]

       gsl-randist  is	a  demonstration  program for the GNU Scientific Library.  It generates n
       random samples from the	distribution  DIST  using  the	distribution  parameters  param1,
       param2, ...

       Here  is  an  example.  We generate 10000 random samples from a Cauchy distribution with a
       width of 30 and histogram them over the range -100 to 100, using 200 bins.

	    gsl-randist 0 10000 cauchy 30 | gsl-histogram -100 100 200 > histogram.dat

       A plot of the resulting histogram will show the familiar shape of the Cauchy  distribution
       with fluctuations caused by the finite sample size.

	    awk '{print $1, $3 ; print $2, $3}' histogram.dat | graph -T X

       gsl(3), gsl-histogram(1).
