Subject [jira] [Commented] (RNG-16) Linear congruential generators
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2016 12:55:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RNG-16?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15509829#comment-15509829

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

bq The generator is defined by the protocol

Ah, OK.  Then, if every client software has to implement a generator (if the language provides
a different one), then why not have the protocol define a good generator?
But maybe that the protocol cannot be changed anymore...

> 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.
