DRAND48_R

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)

NAME

drand48_r, erand48_r, lrand48_r, nrand48_r, mrand48_r, jrand48_r, srand48_r, seed48_r, lcong48_r - generate uniformly distributed pseudo-random numbers reentrantly  

SYNOPSIS

#include <stdlib.h>

int drand48_r(struct drand48_data *buffer, double *result);

int erand48_r(unsigned short xsubi[3],

struct drand48_data *buffer, double *result); int lrand48_r(struct drand48_data *buffer, long int *result); int nrand48_r(unsigned short int xsubi[3],
struct drand48_data *buffer, long int *result); int mrand48_r(struct drand48_data *buffer,long int *result); int jrand48_r(unsigned short int xsubi[3],
struct drand48_data *buffer, long int *result); int srand48_r(long int seedval, struct drand48_data *buffer); int seed48_r(unsigned short int seed16v[3],
struct drand48_data *buffer); int lcong48_r(unsigned short int param[7],
struct drand48_data *buffer);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

All functions shown above: _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE  

DESCRIPTION

These functions are the reentrant analogs of the functions described in drand48(3). Instead of modifying the global random generator state, they use the supplied data buffer.

Before the first use, this struct must be initialized, for example, by filling it with zeros, or by calling one of the functions srand48_r(), seed48_r(), or lcong48_r().  

RETURN VALUE

The return value is 0.  

ATTRIBUTES
