$prng1 = Math::Random::OO::Uniform->new();
$prng2 = Math::Random::OO::Uniform->new($high);
$prng3 = Math::Random::OO::Uniform->new($low,$high);
new takes up to two optional parameters and returns a new
Math::Random::OO::Uniform object. With no parameters, the object generates
random numbers in the range of zero (inclusive) to one (exclusive). With a
single parameter, the object generates random numbers from zero (inclusive) to
the value of the parameter (exclusive). Note, the object does this with
multiplication, so if the parameter is negative, the function will return
negative numbers. This is a feature or bug, depending on your point of view.
With two parameters, the object generates random numbers from the first
parameter (inclusive) to the second parameter (exclusive). (Actually, as
long as you have two parameters, new will put them in the right order).
$rv = $prng->seed( @seeds );
This method seeds the random number generator. At the moment, only the
first seed value matters. It should be a positive integer.
$rnd = $prng->next();
This method returns the next random number from the random number generator.
It does not take any parameters.
