NAME ^

TrulyRandom - Perl interface to a truly random number generator function

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Math::TrulyRandom;
    
    $random = truly_random_value();

DESCRIPTION ^

The TrulyRandom module provides an ability to generate truly random numbers from within Perl programs. The source of the randomness is from interrupt timing discrepancies.

EXAMPLE ^

    $random = truly_random_value();

BUGS ^

The random numbers take a long time (in computer terms) to generate, so are only really useful for seeding pseudo random sequence generators.

COPYRIGHT ^

This implementation derives from the truly random number generator function developed by Matt Blaze and Don Mitchell, and is copyright of AT&T. Other parts of this perl extension are copyright of Systemics Ltd ( http://www.systemics.com/ ).
