splitmix

Pure Haskell implementation of SplitMix pseudo-random number generator.

dieharder

Dieharder is a random number generator (rng) testing suite. It is intended to test generators, not files of possibly random numbers as the latter is a fallacious view of what it means to be random. Is the number 7 random? If it is generated by a random process, it might be. If it is made up to serve the purpose of some argument (like this one) it is not. Perfect random number generators produce "unlikely" sequences of random numbers – at exactly the right average rate. Testing a rng is therefore quite subtle.

time dieharder-input splitmix | dieharder -a -g 200

The test-suite takes around half-an-hour to complete. All tests are PASSED (occasionally WEAK).

In comparison, built-in Marsenne Twister test takes around 15min.

Note: the performance can be potentially further improved when GHC gets SIMD Support.
