This question may not be specific to R, but I'm using R so here goes:
Since R is slow (as is Splus) I want to split a simulation and run it on
2 or 3 systems at once. The simulations involve generating a large number
of random values. How can I set .Random.seed so that the succession of
random values don't overlap across systems.
I see that when I invoke R and give command runif(1) a different .Random.seed
is created each time, but how do I know the stream of random values won't
overlap when I invoke R on different machines?
