crng 1.0: Random-number generators (RNGs) implemented as Python
extension types coded in C.

The Python module crng implements random-number generators (RNGs)
based on several different algorithms producing uniform deviates in
the open interval (0,1), i.e. exclusive of the end-point values 0 and
1. A few continuous and integer-valued non-uniform deviates are also
available. Each RNG algorithm is implemented as a separate Python
extension type. The RNG types are independent of each other, but have
very similar interfaces. The entire module is implemented as one
single C source code file.

[Please note that the crng module has been tested under Python 1.5.2
only. I'd be grateful if someone could check it under Python 2.0.]
