Project Version: 1.0.0

Project Status: Active

Project Description: Provided within is a high quality and fast PPRNG that is able to be used in an ‘OpenMP’ parallel environment compiled under either C++98 or C++11. The objective of this package release is to consolidate the distribution of the ‘sitmo’ library on CRAN by enabling others to link to the ‘sitmo’ header file instead of including a copy of ‘sitmo’ within their individual package. Lastly, the package contains example implementations using ‘sitmo’ and two accompanying vignette that provide additional information.


  • Header-only R package that enables LinkingTo options.
  • Vignettes detailing creation of uniform RNGs and parallel RNG streams within C++
