rand_pcg

Build Status Build Status Latest version [Book API API Minimum rustc version

Implements a selection of PCG random number generators.

PCG is a family of simple fast space-efficient statistically good algorithms for random number generation. [Melissa O'Neill, Harvey Mudd College, 2014].

The PCG algorithms are not suitable for cryptographic uses, but perform well in statistical tests, use little memory and are fairly fast. See the pcg-random website.

This crate depends on rand_core and is part of the Rand project.

Crate Features

rand_pcg is no_std compatible. It does not require any functionality outside of the core lib, thus there are no features to configure.

The serde1 feature includes implementations of Serialize and Deserialize for the included RNGs. NOTE: to use binary serialisation with any of the 64-bit output (128-bit internal) RNGs, you must add the following dependency, since the i128 feature is not current enabled by default (this should be fixed soon):

bincode = { version = "1", features = ["i128"] }
