rand_xorshift

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

Implements the Xorshift random number generator.

The Xorshift[^1] algorithm is not suitable for cryptographic purposes but is very fast. If you do not know for sure that it fits your requirements, use a more secure one such as StdRng or OsRng.

Crate Features

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