Perl extension to generate cryptographically-secure random bytes
DescriptionBytes::Random::Secure provides two interfaces for obtaining crypt-quality random bytes. The simple interface is built around plain functions. For greater control over the Random Number Generator's seeding, there is an Object Oriented interface that provides much more flexibility. The "functions" interface provides five functions that can be used any time you need a string (or MIME Base64 representation, or hex-digits representation, or Quoted Printable representation) of a specific number of random bytes. There are equivalent methods available via the OO interface. Bytes::Random::Secure can be a drop-in replacement for Bytes::Random, with the primary enhancement of using a much higher quality random number generator to create the random data. The random_bytes function emulates the user interface of Bytes::Random's function by the same name. But with Bytes::Random::Secure the random number generator comes from Math::Random::ISAAC, and is suitable for cryptographic purposes. The harder problem to solve is how to seed the generator. This module uses Crypt::Random::Seed to generate the initial seeds for Math::Random::ISAAC.

Upload new screenshots
Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.
- Take only a screenshot of the respective application and not of your whole desktop (unless the screenshot is meant for a window manager).
- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
