The **seed** Command

The **seed** command will reset the internal random number generator.

`seed [`*seed_integer*]

The *seed_integer*, if given, will be used to seed the new
random number sequence. This affects the statistical functions in
3.17.9 and other functions that generate random values.
Setting the seed explicitly enables the sequence of ``random'' values
returned from these functions to be repeatable (the default seed is
random).
