PDL::RandVar::Histogram -- Arbitary distribution random variables

Current version is 1.0

use PDL::RandVar::Histogram $m = new PDL::RandVar::Histogram($dist);

Histogram random variables are useful for generating distributions to match arbitrary vector (N-D) data. On initialization, you feed in a clumped array whose value is proportional to the probability of landing in each bin. You get back values of indices into the original vector. If you ask for it, you can get subsampling in the mantissa of each index.

Runs a little slow -- hooking into the gnu package will work better.

Construct a new histogram-distribution random variable

Signature: (See PDL::PDL::RandVar::new)

$a = new PDL::RandVar::Histogram(<size>,<opt>);

Options:

**seed**

- A number to use as the seed.

$a = new PDL::RandVar::Histogram($dist); $xy = sample $a;
