Detailed Description

The Random Number Generator (RNG) that returns a predetermined sequence.

Defines a random variable that has a specified, predetermined sequence. This would be useful when trying to force the RNG to return a known sequence, perhaps to compare ns-3 to some other simulator

Creates a generator that returns successive elements of the values array on successive calls to RandomVariableStream::GetValue. Note that the values in the array are copied and stored by the generator (deep-copy). Also note that the sequence repeats if more values are requested than are present in the array.

Here is an example of how to use this class:

Ptr<DeterministicRandomVariable> s = CreateObject<DeterministicRandomVariable> ();
// The following array should give the sequence
//
// 4, 4, 7, 7, 10, 10 .
//
double array [] = { 4, 4, 7, 7, 10, 10};
uint64_t count = 6;
s->SetValueArray (array, count);
double value = x->GetValue ();
