[][src]Struct rand::rngs::ThreadRng

pub struct ThreadRng { /* fields omitted */ }

The type returned by thread_rng, essentially just a reference to the PRNG in thread-local memory.

ThreadRng uses the same PRNG as StdRng for security and performance. As hinted by the name, the generator is thread-local. ThreadRng is a handle to this generator and thus supports Copy, but not Send or Sync.

Unlike StdRng, ThreadRng uses the ReseedingRng wrapper to reseed the PRNG from fresh entropy every 64 kiB of random data. OsRng is used to provide seed data.

Note that the reseeding is done as an extra precaution against side-channel attacks and mis-use (e.g. if somehow weak entropy were supplied initially). The PRNG algorithms used are assumed to be secure.

fn fill<T: AsByteSliceMut + ?Sized>(&mut self, dest: &mut T)[src]

Fill dest entirely with random bytes (uniform value distribution), where dest is any type supporting AsByteSliceMut, namely slices and arrays over primitive integer types (i8, i16, u32, etc.). Read more

fn try_fill<T: AsByteSliceMut + ?Sized>(
    &mut self,
    dest: &mut T
) -> Result<(), Error>
[src]

Fill dest entirely with random bytes (uniform value distribution), where dest is any type supporting AsByteSliceMut, namely slices and arrays over primitive integer types (i8, i16, u32, etc.). Read more

fn gen_bool(&mut self, p: f64) -> bool[src]

Return a bool with a probability p of being true. Read more

fn gen_ratio(&mut self, numerator: u32, denominator: u32) -> bool[src]

Return a bool with a probability of numerator/denominator of being true. I.e. gen_ratio(2, 3) has chance of 2 in 3, or about 67%, of returning true. If numerator == denominator, then the returned value is guaranteed to be true. If numerator == 0, then the returned value is guaranteed to be false. Read more
