Given that the size of some sets (example, 52! (about 2226 or 8*1067), the number of ways to shuffle a regular deck of cards) exceeds the period of most Pseudorandom Number Generators (PRNG), is it true that some combinations may be unable to be generated by the PRNG?
Does it matter if tries to permutate the array, vs. whether it picks items one by one? What if you re-seeded the generator periodically?
EDIT: Not a duplicate. I do not see how the proposed duplicate answers the question.: Is it true that some sequences cannot be generated, no matter how you use the RNG (including re-seeding)?
