Random_points_on_square_2 (double a, Random &rnd=get_default_random())
creates an input iterator g generating points of type Point_2 uniformly distributed on the boundary of the square with side length $$2 a$$, centered at the origin, i.e. $$\forall p = *g:$$ one coordinate is either $$a$$ or $$-a$$ and for the other coordinate $$c$$ holds $$-a \le c < a$$. More...

template<typename Point_2 , typename Creator >
 CGAL::Random_points_on_square_2< Point_2, Creator >::Random_points_on_square_2 ( double a, Random & rnd = get_default_random() )

creates an input iterator g generating points of type Point_2 uniformly distributed on the boundary of the square with side length $$2 a$$, centered at the origin, i.e. $$\forall p = *g:$$ one coordinate is either $$a$$ or $$-a$$ and for the other coordinate $$c$$ holds $$-a \le c < a$$.

A single random number is needed from rnd for each point.
