octave-3.2.4.exe:106> help rande
`rande' is a function from the file

 -- Loadable Function:  rande (X)
 -- Loadable Function:  rande (N, M)
 -- Loadable Function:  rande ("state", X)
 -- Loadable Function:  rande ("seed", X)
     Return a matrix with exponentially distributed random elements.
     The arguments are handled the same as the arguments for `rand'.

     By default, `randn' uses the Marsaglia and Tsang "Ziggurat
     technique" to transform from a uniform to a exponential
     distribution.  (G. Marsaglia and W.W. Tsang, `Ziggurat method for
     generating random variables', J. Statistical Software, vol 5, 2000,

     See also: rand, randn, randg, randp

Additional help for built-in functions and operators is
available in the on-line version of the manual.  Use the command
`doc <topic>' to search the manual index.

Help and information about Octave is also available on the WWW
at http://www.octave.org and via the address@hidden
mailing list.

Should say "By default, `rande' ..."
