inline 
Initialize the generator with a random seed.
Definition at line 12 of file LinearCongruentialGenerator.h.

inline 
Initialize the generator with a seed.
The seed determines which sequence of numbers is returned.
Definition at line 15 of file LinearCongruentialGenerator.h.
void LinearCongruentialGenerator::init  (  ) 
Random initialization.
This uses /dev/urandom or /dev/random to initailize the sequence.

inline 
Reset the sequence back to the first value.
Definition at line 21 of file LinearCongruentialGenerator.h.

inline 
Start a new sequence of random values.
The seed identifies which sequence is returned.
Definition at line 24 of file LinearCongruentialGenerator.h.

inline 
Return the seed for the current sequence.
Definition at line 27 of file LinearCongruentialGenerator.h.

inline 
Return the last returned value again.
Definition at line 30 of file LinearCongruentialGenerator.h.
uint64_t LinearCongruentialGenerator::max  (  ) 
Return the maximum possible value.
uint64_t LinearCongruentialGenerator::next  (  size_t  nbits = 64 , 
size_t  niter = 1 

) 
Return the next value in the sequence.
If nbits is specified, then only the loworder bits are randomized and the high order bits are always cleared. For instance, to get only positive values for casting to a 32bit signed integer, use nbits=31. The niter
indicates the number of values that should be consumed, all of which are exclusiveORed together to create the return value. If niter
is zero this function returns zero without consume any values.

Return a random boolean value.
