ALPHA VERSION. FEATURES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND REVISION. BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY NOT GUARANTEED!

Important note: This library depends on my pif_LongInt and pif_Random libraries.

This is an alpha release of my pif_Random.MersenneTwister library. I've been sitting on it for probably about a year and have some changes and optimizations I plan on implementing before a beta release, but I figured someone might have some use for it. At the moment it's a bit slower than I would like, but I have some plans on how to fix that.

Release Notes
Version alpha.1.20191223
  • Added documentation.
  • Separated pif_Random into its own library and removed "pif_Random.dm" from this library. This introduces a dependency to pif_Random.
  • Due to changes in the pif_Random protocol from the preliminary version originally used when developing this library—owing to deficiencies present in that preliminary version—the interface of this library has been entirely changed. It now reflects the new pif_Random protocol.
Version alpha.0.20190102
  • Initial release.
