Subject: [R] how to generate a normal distribution with mean=1, min=0.2, max=0.8

Dear all,

This is a simple probability problem. I want to know, How to generate a normal distribution with mean=1, min=0.2 and max=0.8?

I know how the generate a normal distribution of mean = 1 and sd = 1 and with 500 data point.

rnorm(n=500, m=1, sd=1)

But, I am confusing with how to generate a normal distribution with expected min and max. I expect to hear your directions.

Best,
Jian-Feng,
