Hi Dan,

Now I have included source code of the rsampl.h in the GOAL package.
Although, rlecuyer is good candidate for random number generator, I
currently avoid using it because I wanted results of our  submitted
manuscript to be completely reproducible. I can reproduce the results using
ransampl library by setting seed that I have stored. Changing to other
random generator libraries will imply that I have recheck results of the
manuscript are reproducible and possibly change some of them which is not
possible at this stage. I will reserve that inclusion for the future. I
have resubmitted the GOAL package.
