An instance R of the data type random_variate is a non-uniform random number generator. The generation process is governed by an array<int> w. Let [l..r] be the index range of w and let W = w[i] be the total weight. Then any integer i [l..h] is generated with probability w[i]/W. The weight function w must be non-negative and W must be non-zero.
