a library offering a generic interface to various random number generation algorithms. It can be used both in thread safe mode (where the user explicitely supplies the state to use) and in traditional mode, where a global state is automatically maintained. Moreover, states are persistent and can be saved and restored using predefined or user supplied load/save routines.
The different generators supported by alrand have their own interface which can be used directly, as some generators have extra optional properties which are not available through the generic interface.
