Exponentially Distributed Random Numbers

This project tests the generation of exponentially distributed random numbers. For more details on why this is an interesting and useful thing to do, see Ian Parberry, "Tobler's First Law of Geography, Self Similarity, and Perlin Noise: A Large Scale Analysis of Gradient Distribution in Southern Utah with Application to Procedural Terrain Generation". You don't actually need to know much about the paper to try it out, but you at least need to know some of the concepts.

The program will prompt you for the tail multiplier omega (a number between 0 and 1). It saves the results in a text file distribution.txt.
