srand([rng], [seed])

Reseed the random number generator. If a seed is provided, the RNG will give a reproducible sequence of numbers, otherwise Julia will get entropy from the system. For MersenneTwister, the seed may be a non-negative integer, a vector of UInt32 integers or a filename, in which case the seed is read from a file. RandomDevice does not support seeding.
