Implementation of Java's Random

Project Description

Java-Random is a simple implementation of Java’s standard java.util.Random class in Python. Java’s random number generation algorithm is exceedingly straightforward to reimplement in other languages, and this is simply an implementation for Python.

Installation

A standard setup.py is provided.

FAQ

Why would you do this?
I needed this particular generator available in another program, and this was the quickest, simplest way to achieve that goal.
What’s wrong with Python’s random module?
Nothing. In fact, Python’s random module is far superior to this module in a number of respects, including predictability, speed, robustness, and features. If you’re looking for good random number generation in Python, just use random instead.
Your code sucks.
That’s not a question. Also, feel free to blame the Java specification for that, as they have a very specific way of doing things and I felt that trying to spice up my code might lead to some unobvious and unfun bugs.
Where is the official Java specification for this, anyway?
http://download.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/util/Random.html, until Oracle removes it.
…This is for Minecraft, isn’t it?
No comment.
