in thread code for Levy Distribution?

"Because you're confused and cranky :)"

Well, yes, that's quite true - on both counts.

"The purpose of libraries and CPAN is to be re-used, not provide you with cut/paste implementations of algorithms on demand"

Some of us are not happy with black boxes, and like to know what our programs are doing.

"You can find the formula in the wikipedia://LÚvy distribution"

Yes, I know that. I DID say that I wanted something like "gsl_ran_levy", which gives random variates drawn from a Levy distribution, and that's quite a different thing than a formula giving the probability distribution, which is what you referred me to.

    Last thing I liked to was the source to gsl_ran_levy :)
