Abstract A library containing highly portable implementations of most algorithms for (pseudo) random number generation has been developed, which might be used in any area of simulation which requires random number generators. Each generator is freely configurable by the user, so the RANEXP library is particularly well-suited for applications requiring different random number generators. The algorithms are implemented in C, but are callable from Fortran application program also. Title of program: RANEXP Catalogue Id: ACTB_v1_0 Nature of problem Any Monte Carlo simulation or statistical test requiring uniform pseudorandom numbers. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ACTB_v1_0; RANEXP; 10.1016/0010-4655(94)90072-8 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
