> Hi everyone,
> I've started on bindings for the random number generators and random
> distributions provided by the gsl. The package is available here:
> I've also written a monad and transformer for doing monte carlo
> computations that uses gsl-random internally. Here is that package:
> For a quick tutorial in the latter package, see my blog:
> There is also a more complicated example in the "examples" directory.
> Currently, only normal, uniform, and poisson random variables are
> supported. I have no plans to add anything else unless I need it, but
> I will happily accept patches if someone else is willing to do the work.
> One thing you may need to watch out for is that gsl-random needs to
> link with cblas. If your cblas is not called "cblas", you may have to
> edit "gsl-random.cabal" to get things to work correctly. To use the
> cblas that comes with the gsl, change "cblas" to "gslcblas". To use
> ATLAS, change "cblas" to "cblas atlas".
Arch packages available here,
Note I had to patch gsl-random's .cabal file to not explicitly look for
extra libs in /opt/local/lib. The exact path (if any) should be cabal
(or ./configure's) job, I think.
