Subject [jira] [Created] (MATH-734) Code cleanup: "ISAACRandom"
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2012 14:48:39 GMT
Code cleanup: "ISAACRandom"

                 Key: MATH-734
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Gilles
            Assignee: Gilles
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 3.0

In revision 1232899, I started to clean up the code (mainly, removing the one-letter instance
variables, that can easily be confused with local ones within methods, making the code harder
to understand and maintain).

Other points I'd want to handle:
* Should "Serializable" be implemented for such classes? I think not; especially if it supposed
to be used for "secure" applications.
* (Related to the above) I'd remove the "transient" keyword.
* The contents of method "allocArrays" should be moved to within the constructor.
* It is not recommended to call non-final "public" methods ("setSeed") from within the constructor,
because an overriding code could access a not fully uninitialized object.
* All initialization should take place within a single, most general, constructor and the
other constructors should call that one (using the {{this(...)}} statement).
