Auto-seeded Mersenne Twister PRNGs Maintained by:perl@FreeBSD.org Port Added: 24 Jul 2006 01:25:54 Also Listed In:perl5 License: not specified in port
The Mersenne Twister is a fast pseudorandom number generator (PRNG)
that is capable of providing large volumes (> 10^6004) of "high
quality" pseudorandom data to applications that may exhaust available
"truly" random data sources or system-provided PRNGs such as rand.
This module provides PRNGs that are based on the Mersenne Twister.
There is a functional interface to a single, standalone PRNG, and an
OO interface (based on the inside-out object model as implemented by
the Object::InsideOut module) for generating multiple PRNG objects.
The PRNGs are self-seeding, automatically acquiring a (19968-bit)
random seed from user-selectable sources.
Remove all the bootstrap files (.bs) from the plists.
Starting with perl 5.20, they're not installed any more if empty,
and on FreeBSD, they're (always ?) empty.
