random-source: Generic basis for random number generators

[ deprecated, library, math, public-domain ] [ Propose Tags ]

Random number generation based on entropy sources able to produce a small but well-defined set of primitive variates. Also includes facilities for "completing" partial implementations, making it easy to define new entropy sources in a way that is naturally forward-compatible.


Automatic Flags

base-4 and above do not include syb


mtl-2 has State, etc., as "type" rather than "newtype"


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
