Generate a pseudo-random signed long integer in a thread-safe manner
#include <stdlib.h> long jrand48( unsigned short xsubi );
- An array that comprises the 48 bits of the initial value that you want to use.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The jrand48() function uses a linear congruential algorithm and 48-bit integer arithmetic to generate a signed long integer uniformly distributed over the interval [-231, 231). It's a thread-safe version of mrand48().
The xsubi array should contain the desired initial value; this makes jrand48() thread-safe, and lets you start a sequence of random numbers at any known value.
