Bio::Community::Role::PRNG - Role for objects that use a pseudo-random number generator
package My::Package; use Moose; with 'Bio::Community::Role::PRNG'; # Use set_seed(), get_seed() and rand() as needed # ... 1;
This role provides the capability to generate random numbers using a specified or automatically determined seed. This module uses the superior Mersenne-Twister algorithm provided by the Math::GSL::RNG module to draw uniformly distributed random numbers.

Usage : $prng->set_seed(1234513451); Function: Get or set the seed used to generate the random numbers. The default is an automatically generated seed. Args : Positive integer Returns : Positive integer
Usage : my $num = $prng->rand($max); Function: Generate a number uniformly distributed in [0, $max) Args : Number Returns : Number
