math.c -- various mathematical routines.
This file contains routines used to create random integers. The
initialization routine 'rndini' should be called at program startup.
The flavors of random integers that can be generated are:
irand(n) -- returns a random integer in the range 0..n-1
rndint(a,b) -- returns a random integer in the range a..b
Other routines include:
dist (a, b) -- returns the straight-line distance between two locations.
