I am very new to R and cannot seem to find how it generates random numbers. I 
am currently involved with a project that requires a random number generator 
and have developed one. I am, however, unsure of just how random it is and was 
wanting to compare my generator with that of R (as well as others). 
If anyone knows how the random numbers are generated or have any ideas on 
testing or where a true pseudo-random number generator can be found I would 
love to know.
