A Collection Of Simple Randomizing Toys

All of the random numbers applied in these programs are generated by a method referred to as the Mersenne Twister, so-named partly because it applies Mersenne primes.  This pseudo-random number generator is a built-in component of the PHP5 programming language used to program this web site.

For some technical information on the subject of the Mersenne Twister, some good starting links are:
