Which one?

The one used by Math::Random::MT :) (Specifically, the version documented in the source code for the module.)

There are actually several variants of the MT, but the module only implements one of them, and it (the module) therefore produces the same sequences everywhere it compiles, regardless of whether it is compiled on a 32-bit or 64-bit platform; or what the underlying OS is. That is its main strength for simulation work.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
