Subject [jira] [Commented] (RNG-16) Linear congruential generators
Date Tue, 20 Sep 2016 23:01:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RNG-16?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15508075#comment-15508075

Gilles commented on RNG-16:
---------------------------

bq. Preconfigured generators using the same parameters as these languages would be convenient
for reproducing the same number sequences in Java.

Out of curiosity, for what would it be used?

> This is a RFE for implementing linear congruential generators:

> This type of random generator is often used in language runtimes (Borland C, GCC, Delphi,
VB and even Java). Preconfigured generators using the same parameters as these languages would
be convenient for reproducing the same number sequences in Java.
