In [1]: from RandomArray import *

In [2]: seed?
Type:           function
Base Class:     <type 'function'>
String Form:    <function seed at 0x407a1534>
Namespace:      Interactive
File:           /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Numeric/
Definition:     seed(x=0, y=0)
    seed(x, y), set the seed using the integers x, y; 
    Set a random one from clock if  y == 0

In [3]: seed(123,456)

In [4]: get_seed()
Out[4]: (123, 456)

Cheers, Sean
