Subject:   Generate a random variable from the Student's t distribution
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I searched the SAS language reference and found no function that draws a random number from the Student's t distribution. Must I use the RANGAM to generate random numbers from chi-square distribution and then "compute" t myself instead? This is possible, but very desirable.

Any comments? Thanks in advance! :>
