Extensions to standard Python's heapq for performance applications

Project description

This minimalistic CPython extension provides termial random implementation.

See this and this article for more info on termial random.

Basically, the random generator prioritizes numbers closer to 0. See the distribution plotted below for n==10.

Distribution of numbers generated using termial random.


Simply install this library using pip:

pip install termial-random


The module provides 3 core routines:

  • termial_random.seed(n) used to initialie glibc random number generator based on n provided

  • termial_random.seed_init() used to initialie glibc random number generator based on the current time

  • termial_random.random(n) used to compute termial random number for the given n


See this gist with benchmarks.
