In this paper, the results of some tests including the Chi-Square and the Diehard Battery tests of randomness on some pseudo random number generators are given. The generators were chosen for use in a Genetic Algorithm (GA) package called GAGENES, written in object-oriented C++. The influence of PRNG's on a GA is discussed briefly.
