HP41C random number generator help
Hi folks!
I just got my HP 41CV and I am a bit rusty in HP programming in general (never mind this being an older one than I ever had before) I just looked at the different random number generator programs and I am puzzled. How is this even supposed to work? Take this simple one: 01 LBL "RNG3" 02 LN 03 E2 04 * 05 1 06 MOD 07 END So this program takes the natural logarithm of whatever is in you x stack register, and I am a bit uncertain what the E2 does here? And should I just type it as it stands, or do they mean e^2 (but that would be typed 2 E^X)? I tried one of the other programs too, but it did not return numbers between 0 and 1.
