Memory efficient psuedo-randomly permuted enumerator for C#/.NET to enumerate gigantic ranges.

Say you want to generate a random permutation of numbers in range [0-2^50), without duplicates. Naive approach to get decent pseudo-random permutations would need prohibitively large amount of memory. This library can generate such enumerations using constant memory, and is suitable for Linq-style consumption.

With UInt64, currently we can support 2^64. Can easily be modified to support range up-to 2^128. Internals are 128-bit already.

using RangePermute;
foreach(var idx in RangeEnumerable.Range(100000000))
    // do something with idx
    // idx will be between 0 (inclusive) and 100000000 (exlusive)
