RANDOMSEED [integer]

Followed by an integer value, sets the initial seed value for the random number generator used by Tinker. Setting RANDOMSEED to the same value as an earlier run will allow exact reproduction of the earlier calculation. (Note that this will not hold across different machine types.) RANDOMSEED should be set to a positive integer less than about 2 billion. In the absence of the RANDOMSEED keyword the seed is chosen randomly based upon the number of seconds that have elapsed in the current decade.
