Student programs often want a small amount of randomness, not necessarily of very high quality. Shall we provide a simple interface to a random variable in WG1 Scheme?
I suggest we provide two procedures:
In both cases, the results appear to be independent and uniformly distributed. This is the smallest conceivable subset of SRFI 27. See the design rationale for "why" explanations.
The WG voted to accept RandomCowan.
To be revoted because there was no simple majority.
The WG voted not to add random numbers to WG1 Scheme.
However, this will be revoted.
WG1 voted not to add randomness of any sort.
