Set the internal state of the generator from a tuple.
For use if one has reason to manually (re-)set the internal state of the “Mersenne Twister”[R381381] pseudo-random number generating algorithm.
state : tuple(str, ndarray of 624 uints, int, int, float)
out : None
Returns ‘None’ on success.
get_state are not needed to work with any of the random distributions in NumPy. If the internal state is manually altered, the user should know exactly what he/she is doing.
For backwards compatibility, the form (str, array of 624 uints, int) is also accepted although it is missing some information about the cached Gaussian value:
state = ('MT19937', keys, pos).
