Hello,
This must be really simple, but I can't find it on R Site search. I need to
generate a random normally distributed series with mean 0 and sd 1. In
Matlab, this code is randn(n).
The closest I found is runif(20,-1,1) but this forces a maximum and a
minimum, and there's no way to specify a standard deviation of 1.
>sd(runif(20,-1,1))
[1] 0.578164
