Emmanuel Bourg commented on RNG-16:
-----------------------------------

The use case I have in mind is a game server distributing a seed to the clients 
and expecting them to generate an identical sequence of random events. 
Different implementations of the client in different languages need to be 
interoperable.

> This is a RFE for implementing linear congruential generators:
> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_congruential_generator
> This type of random generator is often used in language runtimes (Borland C, 
> GCC, Delphi, VB and even Java). Preconfigured generators using the same 
> parameters as these languages would be convenient for reproducing the same 
> number sequences in Java.
