  This Haskell package contains code for generating high quality random
  numbers that follow either a uniform or normal distribution. The
  generated numbers are suitable for use in statistical applications.
  The uniform PRNG uses Marsaglia's MWC256 (also known as MWC8222)
  multiply-with-carry generator, which has a period of 2^8222 and
  fares well in tests of randomness. It is also extremely fast,
  between 2 and 3 times faster than the Mersenne Twister.
