cl-random-state 0.1.0-1.c270d4f Portable random number generation

This library is a collection of pseudo random number generators.

While Common Lisp does provide a RANDOM function, it does not allow the user to pass an explicit SEED, nor to portably exchange the random state between implementations. This can be a headache in cases like games, where a controlled seeding process can be very useful.

For both curiosity and convenience, this library offers multiple algorithms to generate random numbers, as well as a bunch of generally useful methods to produce desired ranges.
