xorshift: Haskell implementation of the xorshift random generator.

[ library, math ] [ Propose Tags ]

The Xorshift random generator is a very fast generator that uses only XOR and bitshifting operations. This package contains a basic version with a periode of 2^32-1 for 32-bit numbers and a version with a periode of 2^64-1 for 64-bit numbers. The author didn't tested the random generator, but according to it's specification the resulting numbers are of good quality.
