How good is ran2?
Author:  Date: 2004-09-17 00:51

I know that this forum is to discuss about the RNGs available at this site but I hope you could help me to solve a little doubt. I'm working with ran2 and I just read that it is not reliable because its period its too small. What do you know about this? Is it true? Is it a better option to use Mersenne Twister or RANROT?

Thanks for your help
