A Rust library for generating high-quality random numbers based on the Mersenne Twister algorithm.
Part of the Mini Functions family of libraries.
Random (VRD) is a Rust library for generating high-quality random numbers based on the Mersenne Twister algorithm.
The Mersenne Twister is a pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) that is often used in computer simulations and games. It is a fast and reliable PRNG.
The Random (VRD) is used to generate random numbers using the Mersenne Twister algorithm. It generates pseudorandom integers uniformly distributed in 0..(2^32 - 1) starting from any odd seed in 0..(2^32 - 1).
The index is incremented after each random number is generated. When the index reaches 624, the array is reinitialized and the index is reset to 0.
- Create new random number generator and seed it with a value.
- Design for speed and efficiency in mind.
- Generate random 32-bit unsigned integer within a given range.
- Provide random numbers of different types, including booleans, bytes, chars, doubles, floats, integers, and unsigned integers.
- Mutate the state of the random number generator.
- Produce pseudo-random number sequences that are different from each other.
- Regulate the randomness of the generated numbers, including the seed value and the number of bits used.
- Select a random element from a slice of values.
Getting Started 🚀
It takes just a few minutes to get up and running with
Random (VRD), you need to have the Rust toolchain installed on your machine. You can install the Rust toolchain by following the instructions on the Rust website.
Once you have the Rust toolchain installed, you can install
Random (VRD) using the following command:
cargo install vrd
You can then run the help command to see the available options:
The minimum supported Rust toolchain version is currently Rust 1.69.0 or later (stable). It is recommended that you install the latest stable version of Rust.
Random (VRD) is supported and tested on the following platforms:
