This module is a straight forward implementation of Xorshift PRNG proposed by G. Marsaglia in 2003.
Note that the algorithm is extremely fast and passes the Diehard test though, is not reliable enough statistically (see the SEE ALSO entry elsewhere in this document section). I think however this module is useful for games and suchlike usages.
If you want rather more reliability than fastness, I recommend the Math::Random::MT manpage.
