RandomTools[LinearCongruence][GenerateInteger] - Generate an integer using the Linear Congruence Generator

Calling Sequence

GenerateInteger( opt1, opt2, ... )

Parameters

opt1, opt2, ...

-

(optional) argument of the form option=value where option is range

Description

• 

The GenerateInteger command outputs a pseudo-random integer, generated using the LinearCongruence algorithm.

• 

When generating a large number of random integers it is faster to create a generating procedure by calling NewGenerator than to call GenerateInteger multiple times.

• 

The following optional arguments are supported. They are input as equations in any order.

• 

range=integer..integer or integer

  

If the value of the range argument is a range, then the integer will be chosen from that range.  If the value of the range argument is an integer, then the integer will be take from [0,range).  The default value is 1000000000000.
