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.
