Unit: SDL_statis
Class: TRandGen
Declaration: procedure Standardize;

The method Standardize scales the reference points of the random generator for a maximum value of 1.00. The procedure Standardize should be applied after entering new reference points in order to ensure that the random number generation is correct (and most effective).

Please note the subtle difference between Standardize and Normalize. While Standardize simply multiplies the reference curve to result in a maximum of 1.0, the method Normalize stretches the range of reference probabilities to give 0.0 as the lowest value and 1.0 as the highest value.
