# Rndseed or rndcon?

Suppose,

```rndseed 34567;
xx = rndn(50,1);

for i (1,100,1);
yy = rndn(50,1);
j = 1;
do while j <= 1000;
zz = rndn(50,1);
j = j + 1;
endo;
endfor;```

I want "xx" stay the same whenever I run the program. But "yy" and "zz" have to be different. The used of "rndseed" makes all the three have similar values.

In GAUSS 12 and newer versions rndn has an optional input of a state or seed, so your could change your program easily to this:

```seed = 34567;
{ xx, state } = rndn(50,1, seed);

for i (1,100,1);
yy = rndn(50,1);
j = 1;
do while j ≤ 1000;
zz = rndn(50,1);
j = j + 1;
endo;
endfor;```

In older versions of GAUSS you can use the rndLCn function instead of adding the seed input to rndn (which will still work in the current version as well) .
