The xorshift package

[Tags: lgpl, library]

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.

Although the author didn't tested the random generator, but according to it's specification the resulting numbers are of good quality.
