ABC Path Generator is a program and a Perl library that generates layouts of ABC Path based on the input of a random number generator. Giving different seeds to the generator will yield different layouts. ABC Path is a puzzle game in which one should position the letters from "A" to "Y" in a 5*5 grid based on clues. It is featured on brainbashers.com. ABC Path Generator makes use of depth-first-search to find usable final paths, and then assigns the clues for it, also using DFS.
Math-Random-Xorshift is a Perl module that contains a straightforward implementation of the Xorshift PRNG algorithm proposed by G. Marsaglia in 2003. The algorithm is extremely fast and passes the Diehard test, though it is not reliable enough statistically. This module is useful for games and similar applications.
Perl modules are notated in many different formats: "Foo/Bar/Baz.pm", "Foo::Bar", "Foo-Bar", etc. Module-Format allows one to take a list of modules in any format (including mixed ones) and output it in a consistent format that can be input to an installation program or an information querier.
