  Description     : Auto-seeded Mersenne Twister PRNGs

The Mersenne Twister is a fast pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) that is
capable of providing large volumes (> 10^6004) of "high quality" pseudorandom
data to applications that may exhaust available "truly" random data sources
or system-provided PRNGs such as rand|perlfunc/"rand".

Math::Random::MT::Auto provides PRNGs that are based on the Mersenne Twister.
There is a functional interface to a single, standalone PRNG, and an OO
interface (based on the inside-out object model as implemented by the
Object::InsideOut module) for generating multiple PRNG objects. The PRNGs are
normally self-seeding, automatically acquiring a (19968-bit) random seed from
user-selectable sources. (Manual seeding is optionally available.)

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
