Official Mirror:
CPAN contains many modules for generating random numbers in various ways and from various probability distributions using pseudo-random number generation algorithms or other entropy sources. (The /"SEE ALSO" section has some examples.) Unfortunately, no standard interface exists across these modules. Math::Random::OO defines an abstract interface for random number generation. Subclasses of this model will implement specific types of random number generators or will wrap existing random number generators. This consistency will come at the cost of some efficiency, but will enable generic routines to be written that can manipulate any provided random number generator that adheres to the interface. E.g., a stochastic simulation could take a number of user-supplied parameters, each of which is a Math::Random::OO subclass object and which represent a stochastic variable with a particular probability distribution.

[ Salvatore Bonaccorso ] * debian/control: Changed: Replace versioned (build-)dependency on perl (>= 5.6.0-{12,16}) with an unversioned dependency on perl (as permitted by Debian Policy 3.8.3). * Email change: Salvatore Bonaccorso -> [ Ansgar Burchardt ] * debian/control: Convert Vcs-* fields to Git. [ gregor herrmann ] * debian/control: update {versioned,alternative} (build) dependencies. [ Salvatore Bonaccorso ] * Change based URIs to based URIs [ gregor herrmann ] * Don't run author tests during package build. * New upstream release. Fixes "FTBFS with perl 5.18: test failures" (Closes: #711603) * Switch to "3.0 (quilt)" source format. * debian/copyright: switch formatting to Copyright-Format 1.0. Update upstream copyright/license information. Update license stanzas. * Bump debhelper compatibility level to 8. * Set Standards-Version to 3.9.4 (no further changes).
