rng_cliff, a MATLAB code which computes a sequence of values from the Cliff random number generator (RNG).
In exact arithmetic, the Cliff RNG can be shown to have fixed points, a very bad feature for an RNG. Roundoff seems to ameliorate this problem. However, the Cliff RNG fails a significant number of the DIEHARD RNG tests, and so should not be regarded as a reliable source for random numbers.
