digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 18327] New: std.random.XorshiftEngine is parameterized by

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18327

          Issue ID: 18327
           Summary: std.random.XorshiftEngine is parameterized by UIntType
                    but only works with uint
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
               URL: http://dlang.org/
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: phobos
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: n8sh.secondary hotmail.com

The documentation says that std.random.XorshiftEngine uses a 32-bit algorithm
but XorshiftEngine is parameterized by UIntType and permits non-uint UIntType
but does not work correctly with them. The solution is to either make non-uint
a compilation failure or to make XorshiftEngine support other UIntType.
