Auto-seeded Mersenne Twister PRNGs
The Mersenne Twister is a fast pseudorandom number generator PRNG that is capable of providing large volumes > 10^6004 of “high quality” pseudorandom data to applications that may exhaust available “truly” random data sources or system-provided PRNGs such as rand.
This module provides PRNGs that are based on the Mersenne Twister. There is a functional interface to a single, standalone PRNG, and an OO interface based on the inside-out object model as implemented by the ObjectInsideOut module for generating multiple PRNG objects. The PRNGs are self-seeding, automatically acquiring a 19968-bit random seed from user-selectable sources.
