Subject: [boost] How to inspect state of boost::mt19937?
From: Matthew Gwynne (mathew.gwynne_at_[hidden])

Does anyone know how I can access the internal state of the Mersenne
twister (boost::mt19937) easily? That is the 623 state bytes.

I am looking to initialise a random number generator and then inspect
the state to compare it to another system which apparently implements
MT19937 but gives different results.

If someone could point me in the right direction, that would be great!
