Merged requested to merge new_random into master
random_unit_interval function to generate doubles with 48 bits of random mantissa (3.5e-15), as opposed to the current 32-bit version (2.3e-10).
This implementation uses
rand_r (to blend the initial state bytes), and
erand48 to generate the result over the initial state bytes. The implementation of both functions is inlined to avoid relatively expensive function calls.
This change passes both the
