Would reseeding a PRNG with the PRN from the previous generation have any effects whatsoever on the quality of the generated numbers; if so, does this depend on the PRNG used, or are the effects generally applicable to any algorithm?
Perhaps I'll enhance the question with some pseudo-code:
firstSeed := get_seed_from_entropy_pool() seed(firstSeed) firstPrn := rand() seed(firstPrn) nextPrn := rand()
nextPrn already of inferior quality? Would quality decrease if repeated?
