Maude - A high-performance logical framework SYNOPSIS
maude [options] [files] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the Maude interpreter. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Maude is a high-performance reflective language and system supporting both equational and rewriting logic specification and programming for a wide range of applications. Maude has been influenced in important ways by the OBJ3 language, which can be regarded as an equational logic sublanguage. Besides supporting equational specification and programming, Maude also supports rewriting logic computation. Rewriting logic is a logic of concurrent change that can naturally deal with state and with concurrent computations. It has good properties as a general semantic framework for giving executable semantics to a wide range of languages and models of concurrency. In particular, it supports very well concurrent object-oriented computation. The same reasons making rewriting logic a good semantic framework make it also a good logical framework, that is, a metalogic in which many other logics can be naturally represented and executed. Maude supports in a systematic and efficient way logical reflection. This makes Maude remarkably extensible and powerful, supports an extensible algebra of module composition operations, and allows many advanced metaprogramming and metalanguage applications. Indeed, some of the most interesting applications of Maude are metalanguage applications, in which Maude is used to create executable environments for different logics, theorem provers, languages, and models of computation. --help display help information --version Display version number -no-prelude Do not read in the standard prelude -no-banner Do not output banner on startup -no-advice No advisories on startup -no-mixfix Do not use mixfix notation for output -no-wrap Do not automatic line wrapping for output -ansi-color Use ANSI control sequences -no-ansi-color Do not use ANSI control sequences -tecla Use tecla command line editing -no-tecla Do not use tecla command line editing -batch Run in batch mode -interactive Run in interactive mode -random-seed=<int> Set seed for random number generator -xml-log=<filename> Set file in which to produce an xml log COPYRIGHT

Math::Random::MT - The Mersenne Twister PRNG SYNOPSIS
## Object-oriented interface: use Math::Random::MT; $gen = Math::Random::MT->new() # or... $gen = Math::Random::MT->new($seed); # or... $gen = Math::Random::MT->new(@seeds); $seed = $gen->get_seed(); # seed used to generate the random numbers $rand = $gen->rand(42); # random number in the interval [0, 42) $dice = int($gen->rand(6)+1); # random integer between 1 and 6 $coin = $gen->rand() < 0.5 ? # flip a coin "heads" : "tails" $int = $gen->irand(); # random integer in [0, 2^32-1] ## Function-oriented interface: use Math::Random::MT qw(srand rand irand); # now use srand() and rand() as you usually do in Perl DESCRIPTION
The Mersenne Twister is a pseudorandom number generator developed by Makoto Matsumoto and Takuji Nishimura. It is described in their paper at <URL:>. This algorithm has a very uniform distribution and is good for modelling purposes but do not use it for cryptography. This module implements two interfaces: Object-oriented interface new() Creates a new generator that is automatically seeded based on gettimeofday. new($seed) Creates a new generator seeded with an unsigned 32-bit integer. new(@seeds) Creates a new generator seeded with an array of (up to 624) unsigned 32-bit integers. set_seed() Seeds the generator. It takes the same arguments as new(). get_seed() Retrieves the value of the seed used. rand($num) Behaves exactly like Perl's builtin rand(), returning a number uniformly distributed in [0, $num) ($num defaults to 1). irand() Returns a 32-bit integer, i.e. an integer uniformly distributed in [0, 2^32-1]. Function-oriented interface srand($seed) Behaves just like Perl's builtin srand(). As in Perl >= 5.14, the seed is returned. If you use this interface, it is strongly recommended that you call srand() explicitly, rather than relying on rand() to call it the first time it is used. rand($num) Behaves exactly like Perl's builtin rand(), returning a number uniformly distributed in [0, $num) ($num defaults to 1). irand() Returns a 32-bit integer, i.e. an integer uniformly distributed in [0, 2^32-1].
