[Help-gsl] Truncated normal distribution using gsl_rng_gaussian

Could someone, please,  guide me how to generate truncated Gaussian probability 
distribution  numbers between [min,  max]  using the already existing 
gsl_gaussian generators . lets say between 0 and infinity for example.

In earlier gsl archive, this point was discussed and  refered to other method 
like rejection. I have used this method before, but gsl_gaussian generator is 
at least 10 times faster and reliable than generators based on 
rejection/acceptance method.
so I need a solution based on gsl_generator , maybe through simple 
transformation ..

Many thanks for your help,
C. K
