Abstract Previous articles compared and analyzed the pseudorandom number generators that are delivered with off- the-shelf Fortran compilers for personal computers, and updated two CPC library elements to support multiple Fortran compilers. In the current work, the standard generator that is provided with Salford Software's FTN77 compiler is examined, and the two existing CPC generators are migrated to use that compiler's in-line assembler feature. Statistical analyses are presented that pertain to bo...
