All floating point operations are done to machine precision -- roughly
16 digits. See ?.Machine . You can choose to round, truncate, or
display to anything less than that that you care to. See also the
digits parameter of ?options
The rest of your post is ambiguous to me. But note that (all?/most?)
rng's are vectorized, so e.g.
> rnorm(10,mean= runif(10,2,3), sd = runif(10,4,6))
 4.369411 1.944876 3.143913 6.489048 -1.093468 1.330675
 -2.260413 -1.748759
... if that's what you meant.
