This is a header-only library, as such most of its functional documentation is contained within the "header section" of the source code in the form of comments. It is highly recommended that you read said documentation before using this library.


The ranxoshi256 library provides a ready implementation of the xoshiro256** algorithm, its features include:

  • No hard dependencies besides the standard library, making it fully portable for most purposes
  • Endian-proof seed function to allow for synchronized PRNGs across different machines
  • Supports various output functions with different ranges and uniformities
