for an LCG with the modulus 2**m - 1
the maximum periodicity is 2**m - 1.
what i was wondering is whether with in
this sequence of numbers (which repeats
after 2**m - 1) the 2**m -1 numbers formed
by leading digits of these numbers are periodic or not ?

>P.S. By the way, all such sequences are periodic

if u were talking about the sequence I mentioned
just now..
can u please give me reference or clue to
proof of such a thing. i'm interested in that .
I tried but failed proving eitherway.
thanx.

chax.
