I'm trying to learn how to use randomness in Haskell and it seems very
non-straightforward and complex. I could do a lot of things using 'split'
from System.Random, but apparently it's broken. There is the statistics
Is this a better solution?
It uses the ST monad in the RandomVariate module. Can someone point me to a
tutorial explaining ST, and/or a tutorial in the RandomVariate module?
Pseudorandomness seems like one case where it would just be a hell of a lot
simpler to have a global generator--never split the state. Is the ST monad
some way to accomplish this?
