`srfi.194`

- Random data generators (SRFI)- Module:
**srfi.194**¶ -
This module provides a set of generators (see

`gauche.generator`

- Generators) that yield random data of specific distributions.Gauche has its own random data generator module

`data.random`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators), which was a basis of this SRFI, although procedure names are adjusted to match other SRFIs. This SRFI also adds several advanced random data generators.

- Parameter:
**current-random-source**¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} The value of this parameter must be a SRFI-27 random source. Generators created in this module use the value of this parameter at the time of creation as a random source. Changing this after a generator is created won’t affect its behavior.In Gauche, this is just an alias of

`random-data-random-source`

of`data.random`

. Rebinding either one affects both`srfi.194`

and`data.random`

procedures (see`data.random`

- Random data generators).

- Function:
**with-random-source***random-source thunk*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Calls`thunk`while binding the parameter`current-random-source`

to`random-source`, which must be a random source object of srfi-27.

- Function:
**make-random-source-generator***i*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Returns a fresh generator that creates a new random source by`make-random-source`

, and process it with`random-source-pseudo-randomize!`

with`i`, and internal counter`j`, starting from 0 and incremented every time the generator is called. See`srfi.27`

- Sources of Random Bits, for the details of`make-random-source`

and`random-source-pseudo-randomize!`

.

- Function:
**make-random-integer-generator***lower-bound upper-bound*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Creates and returns a generator that generates exact integers between`lower-bound`(inclusive) and`upper-bound`(exclusive). Same as calling`(integers$ (- upper-bound lower-boud) lower-bound)`

of`data.random`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators).Note that this is different from

`integers-between$`

, which includes the upper bound.

- Function:
**make-random-u1-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-u8-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-s8-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-u16-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-s16-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-u32-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-s32-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-u64-generator**¶ - Function:
**make-random-s64-generator**¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Creates and returns a generator of fixed-range exact integers. Calling`make-random-u1-generator`

is the same as`(integers$ 2)`

, and other generators are the same as`uint8s$`

,`sint8s$`

, etc., of`data.random`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators).

- Function:
**clamp-real-number***lower-bound upper-bound value*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} All arguments must be real numbers, and`lower-bound`must be less than or equal to`upper-bound`. If`value`is between two bounds, it is returned as is. If it is smaller than`lower-bound`,`lower-bound`is returned. If it is greater than`upper-bound`,`upper-bound`is returned.Similar to Gauche’s build-in

`clamp`

, with different argument order (see Arithmetics).

- Function:
**make-random-real-generator***lower-bound upper-bound*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Returns a fresh generator that produces a real number between`lower-bound`and`upper-bound`, both inclusive.It is the same as

`reals-between$`

of`data.random`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators).

- Function:
**make-random-rectangular-generator***re-lower-bound re-upper-bound im-lower-bound im-upper-bound*¶ - Function:
**make-random-polar-generator***[origin] mag-lower-bound mag-upper-bound :optional angle-lower-bound angle-upper-bound*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Returns a fresh generator that produces a complex number uniformly within the area specified by the arguments. They are the same as`complexes-rectangular$`

and`complexes-polar$`

of`data.random`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators), respectively. See their entries for the details.

- Function:
**make-random-boolean-generator**¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Returns a fresh generator that produces random boolean values. It is the same as`booleans$`

of`data.random`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators).

- Function:
**make-random-char-generator***string*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Returns a fresh generator that produces characters uniformly sampled from`string`. The order of characters within`string`is irrelevant. You can repeat characters in`stirng`to increase the chance of that characters to be produced.It is an error if

`string`is empty.This is not the same as

`chars$`

, but rather a type-restricted case of`samples$`

of`data.random`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators).

- Function:
**make-random-string-generator***k string*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`} Returns a fresh generator that produces a random string of length`k`and consisting characters uniformly sampled from`string`.It is an error if

`string`is empty.This is not the same as

`strings-of`

of`data.random`

. Rather, this can be written as`(strings-of (integers$ k) (samples$ str))`

(see`data.random`

- Random data generators).

- Function:
**make-bernoulli-generator***p*¶ [SRFI-194]{

`srfi.194`}

- Function:
**make-binomial-generator***n p*¶ [SRFI-194]{
