Re: [fluka-discuss]: change random seed

Hi Alessandro,

This is a common strategy.
So yes, you can use a bash script with a while do / done loop and within that loop you have a command like ‘sed’ where you edit the seed number in the card ‘RANDOMIZ’ and then you send the job for the file via a e.g. a bsub command.

To avoid having the same results we want to change the seed of the random number generator. I want to ast to you if it is possible to change it using the include comand or you think there is a better solution? The complete idea is to use a bash file to change the seed and then relaunch the fluka run. In this way, it will be possible to do all of this using only one comand on the server.
