rand_pcg

Build Status Build Status Latest version [Book API API Minimum rustc version

Implements a selection of PCG random number generators.

PCG is a family of simple fast space-efficient statistically good algorithms for random number generation. [Melissa O'Neill, Harvey Mudd College, 2014].

The PCG algorithms are not suitable for cryptographic uses, but perform well in statistical tests, use little memory and are fairly fast. See the pcg-random website.

This crate depends on rand_core and is part of the Rand project.
