This gives you two things – first, the x-coordinate of the random point, and second, a way to calculate an index. This index determines which cy to use. You use your second random number to do a lookup in this array, and this gives you the y-coordinate of the point.

Wed, 26 Jan 2011 01:27:57 +0000http://code-spot.co.za/?p=550#comment-12818I tried to implement this idea but I must be missing something. The cy and cx arrays contain the Inverrse cumulative distributions describing the number of points that one want to generate for each cell. I do not understand how looking up into these arrays return real x and y coordinates?
