Re: [xquery-talk]  Re: Random number generation :  requ
Hello,

The D3 JavaScript library has a few succinct first class random number
generation functions. They produce normal, log normal and other
distributions. They may be good models because they could demonstrate
the use of functional programming in 3.1:

(From my brief reading, it seems that Dimitre's libraries can do similarly.)

But I agree with others here that UUID generation would be a common
use case, especially for XML databases.

Cheers,
Hank
