Subject [jira] [Commented] (RNG-16) Linear congruential generators
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2016 06:59:20 GMT


Emmanuel Bourg commented on RNG-16:

The use case I have in mind is a game server distributing a seed to the clients and expecting
them to generate an identical sequence of random events. Different implementations of the
client in different languages need to be interoperable.

> 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.
