Uniform distribution

Sequences with Uniform distribution can be directly created from shuffled, consecutive integers by shifting and scaling. However, many authors, including Park & Miller, introduce a bias into the scaling operation. SUB4 combines this shifting and scaling with SUB1 to provide a simple Uniform generator. It can be modified to take advantage of the longer integer sequences available from SUB2 and SUB3.
