The Future module implements future behavior of already existing functions, which will replace the current version in a future release of Julia.

Future.copy!(dst, src) -> dst

Copy src into dst.

Julia 1.1

This function has moved to Base with Julia 1.1, consider using copy!(dst, src) instead. Future.copy! will be deprecated in the future.

randjump(r::MersenneTwister, steps::Integer) -> MersenneTwister

Create an initialized MersenneTwister object, whose state is moved forward (without generating numbers) from r by steps steps. One such step corresponds to the generation of two Float64 numbers. For each different value of steps, a large polynomial has to be generated internally. One is already pre-computed for steps=big(10)^20.
