NAME ^

Math::Random::ISAAC::XS - C implementation of the ISAAC PRNG algorithm

VERSION ^

version 1.004

SYNOPSIS ^

This module implements the same interface as Math::Random::ISAAC and can be used as a drop-in replacement. This is the recommended implementation of the module, based on Bob Jenkins' reference implementation in C.

Selecting the backend to use manually really only has two uses:

Example code:

  # With Math::Random::ISAAC
  my $rng = Math::Random::ISAAC->new(time);
  my $rand = $rng->rand();

  # With Math::Random::ISAAC::XS
  my $rng = Math::Random::ISAAC::XS->new(time);
  my $rand = $rng->rand();

DESCRIPTION ^

See Math::Random::ISAAC for the full description.

METHODS ^

new

  Math::Random::ISAAC::XS->new( @seeds )

Implements the interface as specified in Math::Random::ISAAC

rand

  $rng->rand()

Implements the interface as specified in Math::Random::ISAAC

irand

  $rng->irand()
