=head1 NAME

Math::Random::ISAAC::XS - C implementation of the ISAAC PRNG algorithm

=head1 VERSION

version 1.004


This module implements the same interface as C<Math::Random::ISAAC> and can
be used as a drop-in replacement. This is the recommended implementation of
the module, based on Bob Jenkins' reference implementation in C.

Selecting the backend to use manually really only has two uses:


=item *

If you are trying to avoid the small overhead incurred with dispatching
method calls to the appropriate backend modules.

=item *

If you are testing the module for performance and wish to explicitly decide
which module you would like to use.


Example code:

  # With Math::Random::ISAAC
  my $rng = Math::Random::ISAAC->new(time);
  my $rand = $rng->rand();

  # With Math::Random::ISAAC::XS
  my $rng = Math::Random::ISAAC::XS->new(time);
  my $rand = $rng->rand();


See L<Math::Random::ISAAC> for the full description.
