Abstract A new very flexible generator of the GFSR type has been constructed, and is examined, thus providing users with numerous different pseudorandom streams from one package. While the software associated with this article is only for Intel-based PCs, some of the statistical conclusions should also apply to other machines for which this algorithm could be programmed. Title of program: GFSRPC Catalogue Id: ACVX_v1_0 Nature of problem Any Monte Carlo or other calculation requiring a uniform pseudorandom number generator. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ACVX_v1_0; GFSRPC; 10.1016/0010-4655(94)00114-H This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
