HPL_rand generates the next number in the random sequence. This function ensures that this number lies in the interval (-0.5, 0.5].
The static array irand contains the information (2 integers) required to generate the next number in the sequence X(n). This number is computed as X(n) = (2^32 * irand + irand) / d - 0.5, where the constant d is the largest 64 bit positive integer. The array irand is then updated for the generation of the next number X(n+1) in the random sequence as follows X(n+1) = a * X(n) + c. The constants a and c should have been preliminarily stored in the arrays ias and ics as 2 pairs of integers. The initialization of ias, ics and irand is performed by the function HPL_setran.
