Return Values
VSL_ERROR_OK
,
VSL_STATUS_OK
Indicates no error, execution is successful.
VSL_ERROR_NULL_PTR
stream
is a
NULL
pointer.
VSL_RNG_ERROR_BAD_STREAM
stream
is not a valid random stream.
VSL_RNG_ERROR_BAD_UPDATE
Callback function for an abstract BRNG returns an invalid number of updated entries in a buffer, that is,
< 0
or
>
nmax
.
VSL_RNG_ERROR_NO_NUMBERS
Callback function for an abstract BRNG returns 0 as the number of updated entries in a buffer.
VSL_RNG_ERROR_QRNG_PERIOD_ELAPSED
Period of the generator has been exceeded.
VSL_RNG_ERROR_NONDETERM_NRETRIES_EXCEEDED
Number of retries to generate a random number by using non-deterministic random number generator exceeds threshold.
VSL_RNG_ERROR_ARS5_NOT_SUPPORTED
ARS-5 random number generator is not supported on the CPU running the application.
