Public Methods
 NameDescription
Public MethodNextOverloaded. Generates a random int over the range 0 to int.MaxValue-1. MaxValue is not generated in order to remain functionally equivalent to System.Random.Next(). This does slightly eat into some of the performance gain over System.Random, but not much. For better performance see: Call NextInt() for an int over the range 0 to int.MaxValue. Call NextUInt() and cast the result to an int to generate an int over the full Int32 value range including negative values.  
Public MethodNextBoolGenerates a single random bit. This method's performance is improved by generating 32 bits in one operation and storing them ready for future calls.  
Public MethodNextBytesFills the provided byte array with random bytes. This method is functionally equivalent to System.Random.NextBytes().  
Public MethodNextDoubleGenerates a random double. Values returned are from 0.0 up to but not including 1.0.  
Public MethodNextIntGenerates a random int over the range 0 to int.MaxValue, inclusive. This method differs from Next() only in that the range is 0 to int.MaxValue and not 0 to int.MaxValue-1. The slight difference in range means this method is slightly faster than Next() but is not functionally equivalent to System.Random.Next().  
Public MethodNextUIntGenerates a uint. Values returned are over the full range of a uint, uint.MinValue to uint.MaxValue, inclusive. This is the fastest method for generating a single random number because the underlying random number generator algorithm generates 32 random bits that can be cast directly to a uint.  
Public MethodReinitialiseReinitialises using an int value as a seed.
