5.1 Public Interface


5.1.1 Ordinary functions

Function: one-in (random n)

Return true when (UNIFORM-UINT32 RANDOM N) is zero.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.

Function: skewed-uint32 (random maximum-log)

Picks a base uniformly from the range [0, MAXIMUM-LOG] and then returns base random bits. The effect is the same as picking a number in the range [0, (2^MAXIMUM-LOG) - 1] with a bias toward smaller numbers.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.

Function: uniform-uint32 (random n)

Returns a pseudo-random non-negative 32-bit integer modulo the non-negative integer N. When N is zero, zero is returned.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.


5.1.2 Generic functions

Generic Function: next-uint16 (random)

Returns a non-negative pseudo-random 16-bit integer.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.

Generic Function: next-uint32 (random)

Returns a non-negative pseudo-random 32-bit integer.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.

Generic Function: next-uint64 (random)

Returns a non-negative pseudo-random 64-bit integer.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.

Generic Function: next-uint8 (random)

Returns a non-negative pseudo-random 8-bit integer.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.

Generic Function: reset (random)

Resets RANDOM to a default state.

Package

random.

Source

random.lisp.
