rv 1.0 - Random Number Generators

Python module rv is release 1.0 of a collection of uniform and non-uniform

random number generators, with housekeeping utilities. It is patterned

after standard modules whrandom and random. Included are three modern

uniform(0,1) generators, and non-uniform generators for all distributions

included in standard module random, and a number of others. One uniform

generator is nearly as fast as whrandom.random(), but has a considerably

longer period. The other two uniform generators are slower, but have passed

extensive statistical tests.

The included utilities allow changing the uniform generator used, resetting

the generator seed, getting the seed used to start the current pseudo-random

series, getting a one-line description of the uniform algorithm, finding the

number of uniform random numbers generated in the present series, and saving

and retrieving module state.
