Generate Random Normal numbers

3 posts in this topic

How can you generate random numbers that follow a normal distribution? I have seen examples of a Gaussian distribution before, but they have produced unwieldy results at best after being translated from other (programming) languages. Does anyone have a good method that wont waste CPU cycles?

Random(0,100,1) looks pretty normal to me! :)

Sorry, should have been more specific. I'm looking for the generation of data that would work like a classic Bell Curve, with 68% of the data within one standard deviation, 95% of the data within two, and 99.7% within three.
